    FreshEd #120 – What’s Wrong With Rights (Radha D’Souza)

    FreshEd #120 – What’s Wrong With Rights (Radha D’Souza)

    Today we take a critical look at human rights. My guest is Radha D’Souza. Radha has a new book entitled: What’s wrong with rights? Social movements, Law, and Liberal Imaginations.

    In our conversation we discuss why there has been a proliferation of human rights since the end of World War II and how these rights have actually furthered the interests of the transnational capitalist class.

    Radha also discusses education as a human right and the challenge it has for social movements and unions such as education international.

    Radha D’Souza teaches law at the University of Westminster, London.

    FreshEd #125 - Trump, detained children, and online charter schools (Julian Vasquez Heilig)

    FreshEd #125 - Trump, detained children, and online charter schools (Julian Vasquez Heilig)

    On Wednesday, the Trump presidency comes to an end. To look back at the past four years, we are going to replay this episode with Julian Vasquez Heilig. In this episode, we explore the schooling received by children affected by the Trump administration’s immigration policy of family separation. This was one of the most sinister policies of the Trump era, one in which the incoming Biden administration promises to reverse in the first days in office.

    Julian Vasquez Heilig is the Dean of the College of Education at the University of Kentucky. When I spoke with him, he was a professor of educational leadership and policy studies at California State University Sacramento. Julian writes a blog entitled “Cloaking Inequity”. In the post discussed in this episode, he reported on a Texas-based detention center forcing children to use an online, for-profit charter school.

    FreshEd #12 - Rightwing Extremism In Germany (Cynthia Miller - Idriss)

    FreshEd #12 - Rightwing Extremism In Germany (Cynthia Miller - Idriss)

    In the aftermath of the riots in America, I thought it would be timely to replay my conversation with Cynthia Miller-Idriss. Our conversation focused on her book, The Extreme Gone Mainstream, which looks at far right youth subculture in Germany. Many of the insights she reveals about extremist groups in Germany can be applied to the groups that stormed the Capitol building in America.

    Cynthia Miller-Idriss is Associate Professor of Education and Sociology at American University. Her book "Extreme goes Mainstream?: the Commercialization of Far Right Youth Subculture in Germany was published by Princeton University Press.

    FreshEd #99 - International scholarships in higher education (Joan Dassin and Aryn Baxter)

    FreshEd #99 - International scholarships in higher education (Joan Dassin and Aryn Baxter)

    Many students move across national borders to attend university. Although the number of these globally mobile students is small compared to the total number of students enrolled in higher education, there numbers are increasing.

    But the patterns are changing, with more regional and south-south mobility.

    The role of scholarships in promoting these new patterns of student mobility is gaining attention by researchers and development aid alike. My guests today, Joan Dassin and Aryn Baxter, have recently contributed to a new edited collection entitled International Scholarships in Higher Education: Pathways to Social Change, which was edited by Joan Dassin, Robin March, and Matt Mawer.

    Joan Dassin is a Professor of International Education and Development and Director of the Masters Program in Sustainable International Development at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. Aryn Baxter is an Assistant Professor in the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College and Director of the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program at Arizona State University (ASU).

    FreshEd #192 – Sitting Quietly in a Room Alone: The fight against Covid-19(Yaneer Bar-Yam)

    FreshEd #192 – Sitting Quietly in a Room Alone: The fight against Covid-19(Yaneer Bar-Yam)

    Note: FreshEd is on holidays. Since the pandemic continues to rage worldwide, I wanted to re-air an interview from March. Much of what Yaneer Bar-Yam mentioned then is still true today, 9 months later.

    --

    Blaise Pascal, the 17th Century French mathematician and physicist, once wrote “All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone.” As people and governments around the world are wondering whether or not to self-isolate to stop the spread of covid-19, Pascal’s adage has become more pertinent than ever.

    As we grapple with our new world, I wanted to bring you a special episode of FreshEd. With me is Yaneer Bar-Yam, a physicist, systems scientist, and founding president of the New England Complex Systems Institute. Yaneer has spearheaded endcoronavirus.org, which aims to minimize the impact of Covid-19 by providing useful data and guidelines for action.

    In our conversation, Yaneer discusses what different countries are doing in response to the virus and talks specifically about children and whether or not they should be in school.

    FreshEd #226 – 2020 In Review (Susan Robertson And Mario Novelli)

    Today Susan Robertson and Mario Novelli join me to review the year. And what a year it’s been! Covid-19 has upended the world. But how has it upended research on education and globalization? Has it changed how we think about and teach comparative and international education?

    Susan Robertson is a professor of education in the Faculty of Education at the university of Cambridge. Mario Novelli is Professor in the Political Economy of Education at the University of Sussex. They are co-editors of the journal Globalisation, Societies, and Education.
