Abstract: In this paper I develop the argument that it is critical for students, teachers, citizens to consider how colonialism, capitalism, and consumerism shape their lives in order for them to read globalization “in a decolonizing way” and persevere with the work of “righting wrongs”, towards a more just and equitable world. Drawing on postcolonial, transnational, and feminist theories, this paper examines the possibilities and challenges related to fostering decolonizing curriculum and pedagogy in the context of globalization. To this end, the following key questions are considered:
What role do technologies and texts play in shaping representations in globalized, transnational contexts today?
What are the related implications for decolonizing education work – theory, research, practice, and policy?
