Postmodernity


Bill johnston the expatriate teacher as postmodern paladin

Bill Johnston: “The Expatriate Teacher as Postmodern Paladin”

Postmodernity is concerned with:

  • marginality and with those traditionally marginalized in social or other ways

  • Encounters that take place in marginal or border territory
