The Child in the World/The World in the Child: Education and the Configuration of a Universal, Modern, and Globalized Childhood / Edition 1by M. Bloch
Pub. Date: 12/15/2006
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan US
The contributors look at universalizing discourses concerning young children across the globe, which purport to describe everyone in a scientific and neutral way, but actually create mechanisms through which children are divided and excluded. The contributors to this book employ post-structuralist, postcolonial, and feminist theoretical frameworks.
