Introduction: Three Globalisms of Contemporary Education
These three very different conceptions, following Manfred Steger (2008) we call 'globalisms' in the plural to distinguish dominant and counter-ideologies as ideas and beliefs that shape the social world and its shared guiding norms and understandings--both what is and what ought to be.
