|Title:||'I-Matang, I-Matang, Ko na Aera?' Interrogating Discourses of Colonialism in Kiribati Secondary Education||Contributor(s):||Burnett, Greg (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5919||Abstract:||This paper interrogates the ways both the people and the nation of Kiribati in the Central Pacific have been officially represented by various socially dominant groups, that is, by colonising agents such as missionaries and colonial officials and in more recent times by I-Kiribati authorities. The interrogation of representations in a diverse range of official 'texts' exposes five major discourses that have been employed to legitimise practices of governance generally, and more specifically, secondary educational practice in this part of the Pacific. These discourses follow one another in a loose chronology but also, to a degree, overlap and most importantly still, inform contemporary governance and education. The discourses include constructions of the I-Kiribati body, cultural authenticity, contradictory liberalism, economic development and universalisation.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||30th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society, Armidale, Australia, 6th - 8th December, 2002||Conference Details:||30th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society, Armidale, Australia, 6th - 8th December, 2002||Source of Publication:||Internationalizing Education in the Asia-Pacific Region: Critical Reflections, Critical Times - Proceedings of the 30th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society, p. 4-5||Publisher:||ANZCIES: Australia and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130311 Pacific Peoples Education||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||939906 Pacific Peoples Education||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.anzcies.org/about.php
