Who Needs Critical Agency?: Educational Research and the Rhetorical Economy of Globalization
Rice, J. A.; Vastola, Michael
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v43 n2 p148-161 Mar 2011
Current critical pedagogical scholarship has theorized the epistemological and social intersection between globalization and educational technology according to two distinct positions. For some, this intersection offers new liberatory knowledges and opportunities that can subvert social homogenization and economic disparity. For others, this relationship is just another phase of neoimperialism that should be politically and ideologically resisted. In contrast, we argue that the intersection between globalization and educational technologies is rather a manifestation of larger economic and logical forces, and that resistance to such circumstances can neither be purely ideological or social. Instead, we contend that such a theoretical and pedagogical foreclosure dialectically actualizes conditions for real change--particularly when it complicates educational research technologies and their impact on epistemological multiplicity.
