Culture, Education, and Community: Expressions of the Postcolonial Imagination. Postcolonial Studies in Education
Lavia, Jennifer, Ed.; Mahlomaholo, Sechaba, Ed.
Palgrave Macmillan
Can education contribute to cultural confidence of peoples and communities who have endured centuries of oppression and marginalisation? If so, what is education and what is education for given such historical circumstances? A project of postcolonial imagination emerges in this book to provoke dialogue and action and to articulate new imaginaries and agendas for change. In bringing together these collective narratives we have shown that interpretations of colonial encounter are varied and experienced in particular ways by different communities and that cultural confidence is achieved though a practice of decolonization that works to make public the private lived experiences of silenced, marginalized, and excluded communities. Contents of this book include: (1) Imagining the Postcolonial (Jennifer Lavia and Sechaba Mahlomaholo); (2) Postcolonial Thought: A Means for Thinking through Educational Research? (Laurette Bristol); (3) Analysing Sustainable Empowering Learning Environments through a Community Cultural Wealth Perspective (Sechaba Mahlomaholo); (4) Images of Us (Lorraine Singh); and (5) Radical Visions: Reimagining Indigenous Education in the Postcolonial World (Bob Lingard and Greg Vass Bob Lingard). (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
