Description : Read Now Gender And Power In The Pacific by Katarina Ferro and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. women from the pacific islands are often perceived by europeans as passive beauties dancing the hula with a flower in their hair, as docile companions of european or local men or as naive personalities surrounded by an endangered environment. but far from that male western reception of women's status, which can be found in documentaries, motion pictures as well as travel and adventure literature, women are active and resolute agents who self-confidently shape their societies through their courageous and determined acting in public as well as in their communities. the current volume of novara - contributions to research on the pacific wants to deliver insights into the lives of women from the pacific islands and shows how they deal with shifting gender relations in changing societies. traditions and adjustment processes to changing living conditions of women and men in papua new guinea, palau and new zealand present fascinating research fields, which open up the view to new living models apart from western gender concepts.

Description : Read Now Citizenship Curriculum In Asia And The Pacific by David L. Grossman and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. based on case studies of 11 societies in the world’s most dynamic region, this book signals a new direction of study at the intersection of citizenship education and the curriculum. following their successful volume, citizenship education in asia and the pacific: concepts and issues (published as no. 14 in this series), the editors, widely regarded as leaders in the field in the asia-pacific region, have gone beyond broad citizenship education frameworks to examine the realities, tensions and pressures that influence the formation of the citizenship curriculum. chapter authors from different societies have addressed two fundamental questions: (1) how is citizenship education featured in the current curriculum reform agenda in terms of both policy contexts and values; and (2) to what extent do the reforms in citizenship education reflect current debates within the society? from comparative analysis of these 11 case studies the editors have found a complex picture of curriculum reform that indicates deep tensions between global and local agendas. on one hand, there is substantial evidence of an increasingly common policy rhetoric in the debates about citizenship education. on the other, it is evident that this discourse does not necessarily extend to citizenship curriculum, which in most places continues to be constructed according to distinctive social, political and cultural contexts. whether the focus is on islamic values in pakistan, an emerging discourse about chinese ‘democracy’, a nostalgic conservatism in australia, or a continuing nation-building project in malaysia – the cases show that distinctive social values and ideologies construct national citizenship curricula in asian contexts even in this increasingly globalized era. this impressive collection of case studies of a diverse group of societies informs and enriches understanding of the complex relationship between citizenship education and the curriculum both regionally and globally.
