Postmodernism Debates and Comparative Education: A Critical Discourse Analysis. Essay Review.
Mehta, Sonia; Ninnes, Peter
Comparative Education Review, v47 n2 p238-55 May 2003
Detailed discourse analysis is presented for two articles that suggest that postmodernism has little to offer comparative education and should be resisted. The two texts, focusing on postmodernism as the antithesis of comparative education and on the "lost promise" of postmodernism, demonstrate the use of language to convey messages that limit or control the meaning of postmodernism or its application, or that construct the boundaries of comparative education.
