C. C. Wolhuter; Oscar Espinoza; Noel Mcginn – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2024
Based on the authors' wide reading in the field, this article suggests the notion of the narrative as a fitting and meaningful way of conceptualising and mapping the field of comparative education. Four prominent narratives can be identified in not only the field of comparative education (and the scholarly discourse on education) but also the…

Neriko Musha Doerr – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2024
This article revisits the notion of difference used in global education, especially study abroad. It suggests a new framework for study abroad to counter its prevalent notions of immersion and global competence that are based on and perpetuate the static notion of difference among discrete units of 'culture'. I introduce the Commodity Project,…

Bray, Mark – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2023
A growing literature, much of it with cross-national comparisons, employs geographic lenses to secure insights into educational studies. Most of this literature focuses on schooling, though parts address kindergartens and higher education. The present paper, by contrast, employs geographic lenses to focus on the shadow education system of private…

Mansoor, Asma; Malik, Samina – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2022
We propose a decolonial-posthuman pedagogy for contemplating the idea of 'womanness' in postcolonial Pakistan. Since posthumanism disbands anthropocentrism while decoloniality subverts Westcentrisms, we combine them to upend the notions of passivity and muteness attributed to Pakistani women via western feminist discourses. By foregrounding…

Arising from…

Zancajo, Adrián; Bonal, Xavier – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2022
Education markets have spread worldwide over the past few decades. Frequently, the expansion of markets in education is presented by their promoters as a means to improve the opportunities of the most socioeconomically disadvantaged students. However, the evidence available shows that market-oriented policies that enhance competition and choice…

Martinez, César Augusto Ferrari – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2022
Motivated by increasing Colombian immigration in Chile, this paper aims to understand the production of Colombian students attuned with the geopolitical discourses on immigrants in Santiago. Inspired by feminist geographers, it considers the nation as an affective device and geopolitics as the power asymmetries resulting from the encounter of…

Shreeve, Robyn Lucia – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2020
Global university rankings seek to illustrate the performance of institutions on an international level and are used by many institutions to help them to reach strategic goals, as such, they have become synonymous to some as an indicator of quality and desirability. As global university rankings become further embedded as a basis on which…

Pradhan, Uma – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2020
Quality education is increasingly considered essential for human development. However, the mainstream approach to quality as a neutral technology often ignores deeply embedded issues of power relations. This article interrogates the taken-for-granted idea of 'quality education' by exploring the ways in which students navigate the assumption of…

Carr-Hill, Roy – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2018
It has often been lamented that girls are more likely not to attend or to drop-out (for example, because of gender preference by the parents, insecurity, pregnancy, amongst many other postulated factors) or that their achievement even if they stay in school is worse than boys. For the former, UNESCO introduced the Gender Parity Index (GPI), which…

Singh, Michael; Huang, Xiaowen – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2013
To ratify possibilities for worldly linguistic connectivities and critical theorising there is a need to forgo the exclusionary preoccupation with English and Western critical theories. The debates informing the international circulation of Bourdieu's (1977, 1993, 1999, 2004) ideas provide methodological lessons for moving from critical sociology…
