Catherine Manathunga. Intercultural Postgraduate Supervision: Reimagining time, place and knowledge. Routledge. 2014. Pages: 198.
As a result of internationalisation and widening access of education, significantly more academics now engage in intercultural supervision or supervising students who are culturally different to themselves.
This book argues that empowering intercultural supervision can result from more nuanced, critical and theoretically-based understandings of time, place and knowledge. It shows how a range of ‘Southern’ theories (including postcolonial, Indigenous, feminist, social and cultural geography theories) about history, geography and knowledge can offer fresh insights into intercultural supervision.
This book will be of value to academic supervisors and postgraduate students, especially those engaged in intercultural supervision, as well as researchers and scholars in the field of higher education.
