Check your orientalism at the door: Edward Said, Sanjay Seth, and the adequacy of Western pedagogy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Western pedagogy and its preconceived notions of the non-Western world can limit scholars from developing accurate understandings of culturally different societies. Western academics teaching at foreign and Western institutions abroad must be mindful of how ingrained and subconscious Orientalist thinking can distort and hinder their interactions with local students.
