Mathematics education seen both as a field of research and as a field of practice is a multicultural field.

This article relies on twelve texts published in "Distances et Savoirs." It asserts three "figures of thought" crossing our scientific disciplines: the substance, the relation, and the movement.

This paper presents some possibilities for applying the linguistic and psychological theories of two dialogists, Mikhail Bakhtin and Jacques Lacan, to the classroom. There is a short summary of how the two theories may interact with each other and then a discussion of their two opposing views of identity formation. Bakhtin was a Russian, coming…

Lopez-Facal, Ramon; Jimenez-Aleixandre, Maria Pilar – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2009
This comment on L. Simonneaux and J. Simonneaux paper focuses on the role of "identities" in dealing with socio-scientific issues.

Ringer, Fritz – Comparative Education, 2006
Since the classical authors of the nineteenth century, the explanation of macro-social phenomena has been considered as the essential epistemic achievement, hence the "raison d'etre," of comparative analysis in the social sciences.

Doughty, Howard A. – College Quarterly, 2005
The field of Postcolonial Studies is one of the academic fashions that has arisen in an attempt to amend or replace radical theories of social power since the alleged discrediting of Marxism.

Doig, Brian – Assessment in Education: Principles, Policy and Practice, 2006
In this paper, I will argue that it is possible to use data from large-scale international and national mathematics assessment programmes, whose attention is on summative achievement, to provide formative information that informs teachers about the effects of their classroom practice. However, to have impact on, and be useful for, classroom…
