Join us for the launch of ‘Principles of Transversality in Globalization and Education’, a newly published book co-authored by Institute for Culture and Society researcher, Associate Professor David Cole. This unique book comprehensively covers the evolving field of transversality, globalization, and education. It presents creative, research-based thought experiments that seek to unravel the forces of globalization impacting education. Pursuing various approaches to, and uses of, transversality, with a focus on the ideas of Félix Guattari, it is the only book of its kind. Specifically, it examines the influence of Guattari at the forefront of educational research that addresses, enhances and sets free activist micro-perspectives, which can counter macro-global movements, such as capitalism and climate change. This book is a global education research text that includes perspectives from four continents, providing a balanced and significant work on globalization in education.
