In this presentation, Professor Fazal Rizvi will discuss the colonial origins of an elite secondary school in India - La Martiniere College in Lucknow - in order to show how it has remained attached to its colonial traditions, while seeking to negotiate the new requirements of postcolonial nationalism in India and, more recently, the opportunities provided by the new global economy. Fazal will suggest that the school's struggle to preserve its elite status has not been easy, as the demands of shifting social imaginaries in India have impinged on the traditional mission of the school based on a commitment to both excellence and equity.
Professor Fazal Rizvi joined the Melbourne Graduate School of Education in 2010 having worked for nine years as a professor in Educational Policy Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he directed its Global Studies in Education programme. His research interests include racism and multicultural education, Australia-Asia relations, models of educational policy research, theories of globalisation and international education, issues of identity, citizenship and culture in transnational contexts, and contemporary youth cultures. Fazal has published more than 18 books and over 100 articles, and his latest book, Globalizing Education Policy (2010), is published by Routledge. He has also been an editor of a major book series for Allen and Unwin, Studies of Education and an editor of Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Policy of Education.
