Book Description

Led by Professor Lester-Irabinna Rigney, Global Perspectives and New Challenges in Culturally Responsive Pedagogies brings together diverse communities of education research in an innovative way to develop a nuanced understanding of the relationship between education and democracy.

This book synthesises a range of theoretical conceptual and empirical approaches to address the complex challenges faced by young people and societies in the 21st century. Each chapter provides accounts of local inclusive encounters in education, while engaging with global debates and issues, such as racism, neoliberalism, new colonialism, de-democratisation and growing social, economic, and educational inequality. This book presents new ways of thinking about democracy, local-global enactments of culturally responsive pedagogies through teaching and learning, and future thinking for a new era.

Bringing together diverse, Australian and international perspectives, this book will be relevant to educators, researchers, and policy makers who are interested in Indigenous education, educational sociology, cultural safety, critical pedagogy and education leadership theory.
