Indelicato, Maria Elena; Pražic, Ivana – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2019
In this article, we develop a genealogy of international education studies' tenets of culture shock and skills deficit.

One of the most important modern technologies was the cinema, which Australians…
