Year: 1995

Author: Johnson-Riordan, Lorraine

Type of paper: Abstract refereed

Taking as its point of departure Raymond Williams' 1986 lecture "The Future of Cultural Studies" in which he traces the trajectory of his own work in Cultural Studies to his teaching in adult and other tertiary education institutions, this paper begins to explore the as-yet-little-explored possibilities opened up for education theory, research and teaching practice by the bringing together of teaching and Cultural Studies specifically in the context of contemporary "post-colonial" tertiary institutions. Set in two scenes of adult teaching practice (New York City and Sydney's south-west), the paper will suggest the importance of reworking the categories of memory, time and space in both education discourse/practice and Cultural Studies work around knowledge production.
