'Pedagogy in the Pub' is a series of monthly discussions, facilitated by some of the keenest educational thinkers from Australia and abroad.
Following the unexpected electoral victory of Donald Trump and the Brexit vote, many observers, both academic and popular, have argued that this swing to the right represents a backlash against globalisation.
The idea of post-globalisation has been proposed, implying the rise of ethno-nationalist sentiments together with erosion of the power of global institutions.
In this talk, Professor Fazal Rizvi will consider these claims; speculate on which aspects of globalisation are likely to decline and which are not; and what implications might the idea of post-globalisation potentially have for educational policy and practice.
Fazal Rizvi is a Professor of Global Studies in Education at the University of Melbourne, as we well as an Emeritus Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He has written extensively on issues of identity and culture in transnational contexts, globalisation and education policy and Australia-Asia relations.

Dinner and drinks: 6.00–6.45pm (guests are invited to order from the Lincoln Hotel menu at their own expense)
