Details

The Comparative and International Education research network (CoInEd) (http://sydney.edu.au/education_social_work/research/centres_and_networks/CIEN/index.shtml) of the Faculty of Education and Social Work brings together scholars working in this diverse field of inquiry. Using innovative methodologies in cross-cultural research, critical policy studies, critical discourse analysis, and postcolonial critique, its members study globalisation, internationalisation, citizenship, identities, and aid and international development relating to education.

The network is proud to host this one-time screening of Schooling the World: the White Man's Last Burden, a documentary that examines what really happens when we replace a traditional culture's way of learning and understanding the world with our own. The film takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world's last sustainable indigenous cultures.

Event details When: 11.30am - 12.45pmWhere: Lecture Theatre 424, Education Building A35, Manning Rd, University of Sydney
