Changing Conceptions of Globalization: Changing Conceptions of Education.
Fitzsimons, Patrick
Educational Theory, v50 n4 p505-20 Fall 2000
Examines changing conceptions of globalization in education, highlighting new electronic information technologies that, rather than promoting homogeneity, are producing a stimulus for a politics of difference. Cyborgs and cyberspace are emerging as discourses of disunity and difference. The essay recommends a form of critical localism to challenge the assumed unity and coherence of education within a rapidly globalizing world. (SM)
