Deconstructing globalization in curriculum from the viewpoint of Derrida

If globalization is meant to be a happening event wherein awareness is essential, then revisiting globalization and curriculum development to enhance the awareness of learners would be vital. The present study aimed to revisit globalization considering underpinning ideas of Derrida the contemporary philosopher. Derrida maintains that Western philosophy since the time of Plato has been rational; in a way that power is given to each of the binary terms preferred over its oppositional. Preference of speech over writing, philosophy over literature, and self over others are examples of this view. To avoid such dichotomies Derrida suggested a deconstruction and decentralization which set aside the polarity by considering the opposite side. Guided by this view, the present study looks at theories of globalization in general and economy oriented ones in particular to deal with complexity of globalization and its aspects in curriculum. Deconstruction as such would differentiate globalization from westernization and therefore, local culture is to be reflected in the curriculum. Finally, a shift from universal approach to globalization and technical views in favor of peculiarity along with emphasis on metaphorical nature of content and aesthetical critique was suggested.
