Transnational education and curriculum studies: International perspectives

Chi Kin John LEE (Editor), Noel GOUGH (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBooks


In recent years, there has been increasing attention placed on international and transnational aspects of school and higher education curricula, and the different research approaches and lenses through which these issues are studied. This edited volume explores diverse perspectives and discourses of curriculum studies contributed by scholars both within and outside the "majority world". In addition, it tackles both transnational cross-border endeavours involving national governments and policy measures, and the promises, challenges and failings of those formal relationships.
The book consists of three sections. The first section provides an introduction and overviews of transnational education in connection with curriculum studies, schooling and higher education. The second section deals with transnational and international perspectives on curriculum studies, schooling and education. The final, third section highlights transnational and international perspectives on higher education.
This timely volume tackles the questions often posed by curriculum scholars and educational researchers around the possibility of a transnational approach to curriculum studies and how (and if) a common set of means can transcend national boundaries and sensitivities. It looks at the common issues and problems across nations that international and transnational curriculum and educational research work could address.
This volume will appeal to researchers and policy makers interested in transnational education and curriculum studies. Copyright © 2021 selection and editorial matter, John Chi-Kin Lee and Noel Gough; individual chapters, the contributors.
