Ethical dialogues for New Times
Changing global and local conditions have given rise to complex issues of identity. Within such conditions, the challenge for educators is to help students to develop a language with which to describe the new and dynamic cultural identities and relationships constitutive of what Hall (1996a, p.223) describes as ‘New Times’. Students need opportunities to encounter and to negotiate ways of shaping the world through language that are more representative of ‘New Ethnicities’ (Hall, 1996a, p. 481) that characterize Australian society in the context of dynamic global networks. A dialogic pedagogy can provide opportunities for students to engage in an ethically reflexive dialectic with the various discourses of ethnicity available for appropriation in Australian society. A study of the language exchanged by a group of Grade 5 students within the context of a Studies of Asia curriculum project highlights such struggle between different discourses of ethnicity.
