Two Special Events - Leadership and Wisdom

The International Graduate Centre of Education, sponsored by the Wellbeing and Sustainability research theme, is delighted to host Associate Professor Zane Ma Rhea for a two day visit to Charles Darwin University. Zane's most recent publications are The Frontiers of Taste (Arkansas: University of Arkansas Press 2015) and Leading and Managing Indigenous Education in the Postcolonial World (Routledge 2014). These books provide the capstone thinking for many research collaborations and education projects in the fields of Indigenous Education and Indigenous Studies. Her forthcoming book is Wisdom, Knowledge, and the University: A Perspective from Thailand (Palgrave Macmillan 2016) builds on her work in Wisdom Studies.

She teaches across Indigenous Education, Leadership, and Sustainability programs at Monash University, undertakes research in Indigenous Education, Indigenous-Settler, Food, and Wisdom Studies. She is Editor of International Education Journal: Comparative Perspectives and a member of the editorial board of Studies in Indigenous Human Rights and History.

Leading and Managing Indigenous Education in the Postcolonial World

Associate Professor Zane Ma Rhea will introduce her newest book, offer cutting insights and practical strategies for all stakeholders in Indigenous education. This will be a conversation that will challenge existing practices, seek to harness collective aspirations, and further truly Indigenist orientation to research and practice.

Zane brings together the academic fields of educational leadership, educational administration, strategic change management and Indigenous education in order to provide a critical, multiperspective, systems-level analysis of the provision of education services to Indigenous people. She draws on a range of theorists across these fields internationally, mobilising social exchange and intelligent complex adaptive systems theories to address the key problematic of intergenerational, education failure.
