This volume is the first major production of the globalisation research strand of the Centre for Educational Research at Western Sydney University. This book makes a significant contribution to the theory of and research in globalisation and education, and tackles the topics of superdiversity and supercomplexity. The book’s thesis is that the effects of globalisation on education can only be understood if the specific yet complex conditions of globalisation in education are investigated. The book takes an international approach to understanding globalisation and does not restrict itself to just one methodological or theoretical plane of investigation.Education is one of
these frontline domains in which the effects of superdiversity cannot be
dismissed, minimized or denied. The continuously increasing complexity of
learning environments is raising critical issues at every level, from
description over analysis to theoretical generalization, and this book is a
first and fruitful attempt at charting these waters.  This pioneering book will remain
a key text for many years to come.Jan BloomaertProfessor of Language,
Culture and Globalization and Director of the Babylon CenterTilburg University,
the Netherlands. This provocative
collection works from two premises:  that
today there is superdiversity in our globalised world and related is a
supercomplexity of theoretical and methodological approaches.  The collection proffers multifarious
challenges for educational theory, research and practice in working with,
through and across these two premises. As such, Super
Dimensions in Globalisation and Education is essential reading for all educational researchers, whatever their
interests or location.Professor Bob LingardThe University of
Queensland, Australia. This is a highly
imaginative book that stops ‘flat earth’ and convergence arguments dead in
their tracks. Its genius is to bring
super-complexity and super-diversity into a conversation with each other and
with education, and in doing so shed light on the numerous and unexpected
ways in which global processes are shaping education in revealing and
compelling ways.  Any scholar concerned with globalisation and
education will find Super Dimensions in Globalisation and Education a’ must
have’ on their reading list.   Professor Susan RobertsonDirector of the Centre
for Globalisation, Education and Social FuturesUniversity of Bristol,
UK.  This is an absorbing
and compelling collection. It takes readers on a kaleidoscopic journey through
various intricate expressions of the nexus between globalisation and
education.  And it offers multiple ways
that such expressions can be thought and rethought. In transcending conventional categorisations it invites educators to do
so too.  Professor Jane Kenway, Australian
