For many years I witnessed many of my close friends and family members allow themselves to be controlled by anger. Many times it was merely because they did not know better, and had not developed the skills to be able to deal with their anger. Their angry outbursts led them to make decisions that were counterintuitive to their desires and which later led to regret. Some ended up losing relationships, which were very meaningful to them, while others suffered significant losses in their careers.
This book investigates neoliberalism in education and explains how it is a complex phenomenon which takes on local characteristics in diverse geopolitical, economic and cultural settings, while retaining a core commitment in all its manifestations to market fundamentalism.
Neoliberalism - that set of beliefs and practices which has become the economic orthodoxy of global preference since the 1980s - appears remarkably resilient despite the US financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent implementation of austerity in the massively indebted nations of the European Union. This book addresses the phenomenon of neoliberalism in education and focuses on school and higher education settings in Ireland, the UK, Singapore and Hong Kong. Specifically, it addresses the role of language and semiosis in the reconfiguration of global educational practices along increasingly marketised lines. At the same time, the nature of the counter-hegemonic discourses also in circulation in these sectors is also considered. Collectively, the chapters in the book seek to shed light on the possibilities for resistance and the prospect of change from a variety of theoretical and (inter)cultural perspective.
The chapters in this book were originally published in a special issue of the journal, Language and Intercultural Communication.
