In this chapter, I explore the different macro structures that mediate the identities of immigrant educators, such as, globalization, immigration, and religious affiliation. I use auto/biography and auto/ethnography genres as a reflexive practice to explicate individual as well as communal biases. The theoretical framework for this chapter is based on the work of (Roth and Tobin 2007) for approaching identity and its relation to human experiences. This standpoint contends that a person has a core identity that undergoes a temporal progression that is articulated in autobiographical narratives of self. This standpoint allows me to understand the relationship between identity, activity, and auto/biography. In this perspective, events in our lives may provide us with means to unravel the complexity of ourselves differently, leading to transforming our understanding of the self with time.

Research and Policy Discourses, Practices and Future Prospects

Edited by Joan Forbes and Cate Watson

This is an important and timely collection in which recent research and interpretations are reported and debated. The papers provide a scholarly analysis of a range of significant issues, complexities and recurring themes. They provide theoretical, empirical and practical perspectives on what is involved in co-working and explore the ambiguities, contradictions and fragmentations in a new policy area that cuts across the remits previously held by a number of government departments. Overall, the papers provide a considered and wide-ranging critique of the key research and policy discourses that seek to influence the reformation of services and to remodel interprofessional and interagency working practices. In particular, the collection examines the ways in which the integration of services is operating in practice in the discrete policy contexts of the UK countries; the leadership and management of collaborative working and workforce remodelling; and whether, in addressing the hard questions of the form/s that future school services should take, there are any ‘global solutions’ from new research or from other places that might fruitfully be applied. In addressing these policy developments the collection has multiple readerships in mind and seeks to be both academic and policy relevant.
