Intercultural Studies of Curriculum: Theory, Policy and Practice by Carmel Roofe and Christopher Bezzina, (Eds.). Palgrave Macmillan, 2017.

Publication Date: 
February 2020

Words that come to mind in reading this book are global, contextual, innovative, and multidisciplinary. Globalization is typically defined as a set of processes involving interactions and networks within various domains (including the political and the cultural) and involving also “the accelerated movement of goods, services, capital, people and ideas across national borders”(Little and Green, 2009, p. 1).This seems to describe the processes used in the making of this book. It is global in that it brings together scholars from five continents to provide an intercultural analysis of curriculum theory, policy and practice. Most of the chapters are each written by two or three scholars, some of whom never knew each other but were brought together by the editor of the series on Intercultural Studies in Education, and they clearly used the power of the internet to network, interact, and share ideas across national borders.
