About this product
- DescriptionTransnational education seeks equivalence in standards and/or relevance of outcomes through the transfer of Western theories, concepts and methods. Utilising a critique-interpretative approach, Jing Qi argues that equivalence/relevance-oriented approaches to transnational education assume the legitimacy of the global kwledge hierarchy. Euro-American educational theories are imposed as defaults in n-Western educational communities of imagined consensus. Grounded in a study of a five-year transnational teacher education and community capacity-building program in Northern Chile, the book investigates the relationships between theoretical kwledge, kwledge hierarchies and critique. Transnational education communities are recognised as sites of critiques where conflictual and conceptual 'dissensus' disrupts global and local kwledge hierarchies. Critique is deployed by educational actors in their everyday engagement in transnational education to stage dissensus, which constantly re-draws the lines of possibility for kwledge co-construction. A matrix mapping system is designed to chart and theorise the Chilean educational actors' critiques along the trail of concept translation, learning, application and invation of kwledge hierarchies, which operate at and across global, transnational, local and the newly-created local-global levels. This book examines how these critiques modulate the ascendancy of kwledge hierarchies to enfranchise n-western educational actors for theoretical kwledge production that addresses local needs. Kwledge Hierarchies in Transnational Education will be of key value to researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of international education, teacher education and globalisation.
