[Xmca-l] Re: Nissen on working with youth

And note that this piece articulates very nicely with the issues on that
other thread about the transferrability of pedagogy across socio-cultural
contexts, or as Nissen says:

" the question whether and how standards of educational practice can be
transferred across great spatio-temporal and socio-cultural distances is
far from straightforward
​ ​
and simple: addressing a Brazilian audience with Danish experience, I was
impelled to reconsider it."

I would add that this piece also articulates with Martin Packer's issues of
"constitution" in that Nissen suggests that pedagogy is the "forming of

That also takes us back to bildung - is this ideological imperialism?

I would argue, with Nissen (I think), that it is not, but rather approaches
a cultural universal. The particular forms vary dramatically from one
cultural context to the next but it seems to me that peoples everywhere
care very much about "forming persons".
