Furthering the discourse in postcolonial education
Hickling-Hudson, Anne & Mayo, Peter (2012) Furthering the discourse in postcolonial education. Postcolonial Directions in Education, 1(1), pp. 1-8.
This editorial provides a rationale for launching the new journal 'Postcolonial Directions in Education'. It discusses the term 'postcolonialism', applying it to the study of processes of domination that have their origin in European colonialism, extending beyond the period of direct colonisation to take on new forms, notably those of neo-colonialism, dependency and the intensification of globalisation. Postcolonial theory probes identity, knowledge, and social, cultural and economic structures in historical context, and challenges structures rooted in colonialism and imperialism.The editors invite the submission of manuscripts applying such perspectives to many aspects of education.
