The Oceanic Researcher and the Search for a Space in Comparative and International Education
Johansson-Fua, Seu'ula
International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, v15 n3 p30-41 2016
This paper argues that, despite the increasingly espoused centrality of culture and context to the field of comparative and international education, the voices from within the context remain silent and absent from the literature on comparative and international education. This paper explores the various spaces in which an Oceanic researcher may operate. It draws on Epeli Hau'ofa's Oceanic philosophy and Homi Bhabha's theory of hybridity to begin shaping possible actionable and ethical spaces for Oceanic researchers to explore the future of comparative and international education research for the Pacific.
