Can We Live Together?: Towards a Global Curriculum
Bates, Richard
Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, v4 n1 p95-109 2005
Arguing that globalization has been conceived of largely in economic terms this article examines the possibility of a global curriculum in the light of Touraine's assertion that the major global problem is not economic but social: can we live together? I argue that a global curriculum conceived in social terms is possible and that it will involve: (a) the inclusion of currently "subjugated knowledges"; (b) the ability to cross cultural boundaries within and between societies; and (c) a commitment to development as freedom. Such a curriculum would be a recognition of the need to rescue society and personality from the ravages of global markets through education.
