In Search of Subjectivity: A Reflection of a Teacher Educator in a Cross-Cultural Context
Lee, Cheu-jey
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v46 n13 p1427-1434 2014
This paper explores the concept of subjectivity from the perspective of a nonnative-English-speaking teacher educator at a Midwestern university in the USA. It begins with a literature review on the role subjectivity plays in education. It argues that acknowledging the existence of subjectivity allows us to investigate its enabling and disabling potential in relation to our practice. Building on George Herbert Mead's work, various forms of the teacher educator's subjectivity are revealed and examined with regard to his teaching and research. It is hoped that this paper would serve as a prompt for more conversations on subjectivity as well as a point of entry into a better understanding of the teacher educators working in a cross-cultural context.
