This book series is devoted to the exploration of “transcultural” directions in the philosophy and praxis of educational studies. The series will interrogate the following:

How can we radicalise our thinking on education based on a new openness and interconnectedness? How should philosophy of education reflect new forces of globalization that in many ways undermine conventional culturalist readings of the world?

What are the issues and concerns that philosophers/thinkers of education should engage with?
How should they position themselves? What specific contribution can transculturalism bring out of them and how can their concerns inspire a new generation of transcultural research in education?
What kind of intellectual and strategic alliances should they pursue to import a transcultural profit into their investigations?

How can new forms of teaching, studying and learning be introduced through these lines of investigation?
How can education refigure its premises – both locally and internationally – through a complex network built out of the changing conceptual dynamics involving nation, culture, syncretism, hybridity, secularity, hegemony and many other issues?
This series will commit to texts that explore, identify and articulate new directions in transcultural education studies. It pivots around principles and processes of transgression, both geographically and temporally: transgressive domains built across different traditions and epistemic and cultural practices.
How do they direct us towards a different future in our thinking and doing of education?
