Towards A Political Economy Of Adult Education And Globalization: Theoretical Insights For Confronting Wicked Problems In Global Times, John D. Holst Jan 2021

Towards A Political Economy Of Adult Education And Globalization: Theoretical Insights For Confronting Wicked Problems In Global Times, John D. Holst

Adult Education Research Conference

Our global times are defined and profoundly shaped by globalization. As adult educators, we need theory to help explain the nature of and paths forward from the devastating social, political, and cultural impacts of globalization. Moreover, when we consider the field beyond academia and include social movement-based adult educators, it is important to understand that not only do we need theory, but some of the best theory we need is developed by social movement-based adult educators. This cross-disciplinary theoretical inquiry presents a political economic framework for understanding adult education and globalization that draws on academic and social movement-based theory.


Adult Education And The Nation-State: A Systematic Review Of Literature, Hye-Su Kuk Jan 2020

Adult Education And The Nation-State: A Systematic Review Of Literature, Hye-Su Kuk

Adult Education Research Conference

In this literature review, I analyze how the concept of the state is defined and used in empirical adult education research articles. Findings are in three themes of 1) systems of governance in adult education, 2) governmentality and contention, and 3) research challenging whether the state boundaries are blurred in the adult education literature. I discuss the implications of the findings in comparison to theoretical approaches toward the state in adult education.
