Product description


"Srinivasan turns to 'Ganga' the river of India as a schizophrenic voice of reason, strength and enlightenment during this cultural identity quest. It is here that she challenges the constant 'race talk' between children, teachers and families. Early childhood teachers struggle with these situations, often choosing to discard the existence of 'race talk', silence the discussion, or justify the intent through multicultural and nationalistic ideologies. This book will help to unlock these conversations giving permission to speak and permission to trouble and engage with the highly stimulating and unique insights." - Tracy Young, Lecturer in Early Childhood Education, Swinburne University of Technology, Australia

"This is a must read book that attempts to depict the post-colonial reality for the Australian who wonders about 'being Australian' and the meaning of it in one's own identity claiming as 'boundary speaks'. Srinivasan makes a useful contribution to the academic literature that sheds light on culture, mono-culture, and multi-culture in a multitude of different discourses to understand the burden of being a migrant as pertinent questions are asked about who determines how and what worth one would have as a player in the nationhood and citizenship." - Ramila Sadikeen, Director, Swinburne Prahran Community Children's Centre Co-op Ltd, Australia
