Globalization as A System of Reason: The Historical Possibility and the Political in Pedagogical Policy and Research


by Thomas S. Popkewitz 2009

Globalization is a word that flows through many different contexts. A Google search identifies over 20 million sites for its descriptions and prescriptions.

In a European study of educational governance and social inclusion, it travels in the narratives of politicians, ministries, school leaders, and teachers to describe the fate of humankind: globalization was the given fact of the world, and schools are to prepare children for this future-to-come (Lindblad & Popkewitz, 2001). The hope of globalization is also the darkness of present economic woes and the homogenizing of cultures and traditions.
