Afterword: Provisional Pedagogies toward Imagining Global Mobilities Otherwise
Stein, Sharon; de Oliveira Andreotti, Vanessa
Curriculum Inquiry, v47 n1 p135-146 2017
In this afterword we bring insights from the special issue into conversation with the ongoing educational challenges of imagining the world differently. To do so, we consider how global mobilities are conceptualized and materialized within three "pillars" of the architecture of modern existence: the nation-state, global capital, and Eurocentric humanism. We consider how each of these pillars stands dependent upon racial and colonial expropriation, exploitation, and subjugation, and in response we propose a provisional pedagogy that would: interrupt and make visible the role of violence in producing contemporary existence (including global mobilities); ask how we might enact transformative modes of redress for the harms produced by this architecture; and facilitate the imagining of and experimentation with alternative possibilities of existence.
