Reccomended Reading


Academic books

Dewey, J., 1938. Experience and Education. Reprint. London: Free Press 2015

How shall the young become acquainted with the past in such a way that the acquaintance is a potent agent in appreciation of the living present?” (Dewey, 1938, p.23).

“If an experience arouses curiosity, strengthens initiative, and sets up desires and purposes that are sufficiently intense to carry a person over dead places in the future, continuity works in a very different way” (Dewey, 1938, p.38).

Gilory P., 1993. The Black Atlantic. London: Verso

“[These themes] are especially important in the history of the black Atlantic, where movement, relocation, displacement, and restlessness are the norms rather than the exceptions and where, as we have already seen, there are long histories of associations of self-exploration with the exploration of new territories and the cultural differences that exist both between and within the groups that get called races” (Gilroy, 1993, p.133).

McCarthy, C., Crichlow, W., Dimitriadis, G., Dolby, N., eds. 2005. Race, Identity and Representation in Education. London: Routledge Taylor and Francis Group.

“Worldliness is therefore the restoration to such works and interpretations of their place in the global setting, a restoration that can only be accomplished by an appreciation not of some tiny, defensively constituted corner of the world but of the large, many-windowed house of human culture as a whole”(Said, 2005, p.459).


Bhabha, H.K., 1994. The Location of Culture. Oxon: Routledge.

The representation of difference must not be hastily read as the reflection of pre-given ethnic or cultural traits set in the fixed tablet of tradition. The social articulation of difference, from the minority perspective, is a complex, on-going negotiation that seeks to authorize cultural hybridities that emerge in moments of historical transformation” (Bhabha, 1994, p.3).
