The meaning of being Muslim has undergone enormous changes in the aftermath of the bombings in New York in 2001. The initial reaction of media outlets was to portray them as a global threat. In social-cultural and political context, they were thought to be unable to fit into Western societies. For example, in a major survey, over half of Australians preferred that their relatives not to marry into a Muslim family.

This book examines the extent to which falsehoods relate to attitudes and perceptions of young Muslim and Western students in German, Australian and New Zealand educational institutions to each other. It also addresses the views, pressures, unconscious biases, presumptions and expectations, social cultural and religious influences that drive the relationship between the two communities.

The island has historically played a special role in the cultural imagination – sometimes as a place of promise of tranquillity; at other times the remoteness has seemed attractive for more sinister reasons. Using islands for extreme exclusion has a long history and remains important for understanding the complexities of inclusive education. This volume presents new case studies of island exclusion of prisoners, people with disability, and refugees in the Global North and South. It also offers reflections on practices of re-inclusion and the larger issues of inclusive education.

Critical Leaders and the Foundation of Disability Studies in Education aims to formalize the significance of early histories of understanding disability drawn from the scholarship of those who turned away from conventional status quo and pathologized constructs commonly accepted worldwide to explain disability in schools and society. The series begins with recognition of North American scholars including: Ellen Brantlinger, Lous Heshusius, Steve Taylor, Doug Biklen, and Thomas M. Skrtic. We will expand the series to include scholars from several international countries who likewise formed analyses that shaped the terrain for the emergence of critical perspectives that have endured and slowly given rise to the interdisciplinary field of Disability Studies in Education.

Critical Leaders and the Foundation of Disability Studies in Education is a sub-series to the book series Studies in Inclusive Education. The series and subseries have independent editorial teams that work closely together. For the volumes published in the main book series, please visit its webpage.
Transforming Pedagogy alongside First Peoples of Remote Australia
Author:
First Peoples living in remote Australia are educated in two worlds. The future of bush food enterprises in outstations in Utopia depends on the successful transfer of intergenerational knowledge. High school girls respectfully inquire about how to harvest and process important cultural materials from country. Students, senior women and young men strengthen their connections to self, kinship and culture and share responsibility to care for country.

Careful collaboration with First Nations people creates opportunities to provide mathematics education which complements and is informed by the work that already exists in the local school community. Consultation with assistant teachers, students, and other community members creates opportunities to validate Indigenous pedagogies in mathematics education.

Decolonising Mathematics Education explores and responds to student interest in managing and harvesting akatyerr (desert raisin). Transforming pedagogy enables the students to respond more broadly to the needs of Utopia Eastern Anmatyerr and Alyawarr people to price and sell this important bush food. Income generated from the enterprise is modest, however the skills of a small start-up business have been applied to many learning opportunities that exist in the local community.

Prompting this book is the paradox of belonging. What pushes the author to write are art’s questions. Rather than take the route of writing, artists in academia could opt for the studio, teaching students, and occasionally indulge in conferences and symposia. However, beyond such rituals, writing art’s questions remains akin to art’s acts of belonging. In these lessons of belonging this is done through art’s paradox. Belonging is a matter of art because art belongs to the aporia that writes it.

Andy Blunden completes his immanent critique of Activity Theory, begun in 2010 with An Interdisciplinary Theory of Activity. A summary of the ontological foundations of Activity Theory introduces a critical review of the work of activity theorists across the world with a focus of applications in medical and educational contexts, and concluded with a review of the ethics of collaboration. Blunden expands the domain of Activity Theory to address the pressing problems facing humanity today and activities lacking in clear objects, collaboration in voluntary projects and social movements, the life projects of individuals and emerging practices. Blunden brings an understanding of Marxist and Hegelian philosophy to bear on the application of Activity Theory to problems of social change.
