Pang, Alfred Kah Meng – Journal of Religious Education, 2021
In contemporary theological research on childhood, there is considerable interest on the social agency of children. This interest is situated within a global concern for the dignity of children as complex human beings, propelled by the articulation of their participatory rights in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This turn to…

Villenas, Sofia A. – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2019
This essay is a response to Jonathan Warren and Michelle Kleisath's "The Roots of US Anthropology's Race Problem: Whiteness, Ethnicity and Ethnography." In this essay, I engage with critiques about anthropology's position on the periphery of critical race studies. The discipline's lack of attention to racism and critical race scholarship…

Hinchion, Carmel – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2020
The focus of this paper is twofold: (1) the paper describes and analyses the enacted pedagogy of three beginning student teachers.

Pollefeyt, Didier – Journal of Religious Education, 2020
A hermeneutic-communicative model of religious education is proposed which is grounded in a Christian anthropology. The human person is presented as a 'fragile hermeneutical space'--consisting of a radical openness to reality, an essential indeterminateness and an ability to transcend his or her own reality. This means that people have an inbuilt…

Forstorp, Per-Anders; Mellström, Ulf – Palgrave Studies in Global Higher Education, 2018
This book examines transnational scapes and flows of higher education: arguing that the educational and political vision of a national, regional and global knowledge society needs to be perspectivized beyond its ethnocentric conditions and meanings. Using eduscapes as its most important concept, this book explores the educational landscapes of…

Ramos, Ana Margarita; Briones, Claudia – Canadian Journal of Action Research, 2021
Based on our present working-experience with a Mapuche kimche (sage) and a logko (spiritual and political leader), we aim at intervening in broader debates on the intersubjective and intercultural production of knowledge. To do so, we pay special attention to contemporary mandates and pervasive conceptions about forms of practicing a better, more…

Smythe, Suzanne; Breshears, Sherry – Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, 2017
Access is often defined in policies oriented to digital inclusion as the potential, if not the means, to access an Internet connection. Using a policy anthropology (Wedel & Feldman, 2005) approach that combines methods of critical policy analysis with an ethnography of adults' learning experiences in a public-access digital café, we argue that…

Harris, Heather; Hatcher, Sarah Junk; Kampschulte, Lorenz – Journal of Museum Education, 2021
The act of co-authoring an article across two languages (German and English) and three institutional contexts (a large science and technology museum, a university-based small art museum and a university-based small anthropology museum) led to numerous instances in which the meaning of particular terms had to be both articulated and negotiated to…

Pink, Sarah – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2014
In this article I outline how a digital-visual-sensory approach to anthropological ethnography might participate in the making of relationship between design and anthropology. While design anthropology is itself coming of age, the potential of its relationship with applied visual anthropology methodology and theory has not been considered in the…

Niesz, Tricia – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Although social movements are frequently background and occasionally foreground in the studies of anthropologists of education, the "knowledges" produced by movements have seldom been a focus of our work. In this Reflection on the Field, I argue that investigating the production and circulation of social movement knowledges, as…

Jeong, Jaeuk – Journal of Research on Christian Education, 2020
Today's education has three impediments to meaningful and sustainable educational reform; first, the lack of precise and accurate anthropology of learners; second, dilemma between constructivism-leading academy and behaviorism-dominating classrooms; third, the lack of philosophy of education in theory and practice. The Montessori system was built…

Petro, Susannah J. P. – Journal of Catholic Higher Education, 2017
