Global Citizenship Education in a Neo-Nationalist Era: Possibilities and Problems
Start Date: 5/15/2018Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 5/15/2018End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description
You can join us in-person or online. The Colloquium will be streamed live at drexel.edu/soe/resources/event-series/gec/May-15-2018-Event
This Colloquium explores what is possible and problematic of global citizenship education in the onset of a new-nationalist era signaled by the rise of right-populism. The presentation briefly traces the recent globalist period (1990-2016) with respect to its educational features; and specifically explores the rise of neoliberalism covalent with globalization that drives the ‘global education’ enterprise coupled with enduring, humanistic efforts to teach for peace, justice and sustainability in a fragile, planetary society. This paper draws upon two recent related studies, the first being those encompassed in GCE: Everyday Transcendence (Gaudelli, 2016) and a forthcoming multinational study of global education in three global cities. The question that the author seeks to address is the prognosis for GCED in the next decade given the wider social changes underway that both buttress and confound efforts to teach for and about global citizenship.
