Udas, Ken; Stagg, Adrian – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
The function of the university in serving the state is the reproduction and legitimization of state functions and behaviours. Theorized in this manner, the university is observed as an internal auxiliary agent of the state that is made subordinate to dominant class interests and not as an independent agent able to critically and selectively…

Djone, Robertus Raga; Suryani, Anne – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
Since Indonesia's transition to democracy in 1998, wealth inequality has increased significantly with a dramatic rise in the wealth of the rich and stagnating income growth among poorer citizens.

Li, Yu-Chih – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
Due to its historical and geopolitical contestations, Taiwan is a country whose people possess divergent imaginations of the national community. Such a condition has been described as institutional liminality, which captures Taiwan's status as not a complete nation state nor a non-nation state; not China nor non-China. Under such a condition,…

Bunn, Matthew; Lumb, Matt – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
In this paper, we problematize current conceptualizations of agency in education. We begin by considering how the construction of the hyperindividual, one that is entirely determined by its own internal capacities, has become the norm within Australian educational policy. We propose that this conceptualization produces undemocratic educational…

This paper employs the new materialist methodology of diffraction to probe the entanglements of matter and discourse that comprise the assemblage of Pilipinx becoming, or the ways by which people are racialized as Pilipinx. By methodologically diffracting Pilipinx becoming through the public pedagogy of punk rock, this research complicates…

Kennedy, Juliet – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019
This article investigates how two Pacific language programmes in secondary schools outside of the broader region of Auckland, New Zealand, enabled an exploration, celebration, and deepening of va (relational space) through language, and contributed to identity construction of students of Samoan and Tongan heritage. As the relational lens is rarely…

Fasavalu, Talitiga Ian; Reynolds, Martyn – International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives, 2019

Thus, a researcher's position with regard to their research requires careful ongoing negotiation because position, when understood through relationality, is fluid. Negotiating position requires acute reflexivity of the researcher but…
