Grieshaber, Susan J. & Yelland, Nicola (2005) Living in Liminal Times: Early Childhood Education and Young Children in the Global/Local Information Society. In Apple, Michael W., Kenway, Jane, & Singh, Michael (Eds.) Globalizing Education: Policies, Pedagogies & Politics. Peter Lang, New York, pp. 191-207.


Sixteen contributions from academics in education, sociology, and planning--most based in Australia--discuss the ramifications of globalization for education and education systems around the world. The first essay--by editors Michael Apple (educational policy studies, U. of Wisconsin), Jane Kenway (global education studies, Monash U., Australia), and Micahel Singh (education, U. of Western Sydney, Australia)--gives an overview of the complexities of the topics addressed more specifically by the contributors, including theoretical understanding of the processes of globalization, the changing economic context of education, neoliberal governance and the enterprise culture, globalizing changes in knowledge production, changing teacher and student identities, and democratic purposes and public schooling

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
