Lunar Mother, a gifted image by artist Sarah Jane Moore

Sarah Jane Moore, artist extraordinaire, generous, wonderful, beautiful spirit presents Lunar Mother a work on canvas that expresses the vision of our journal: to look to the future of education.
As Sarah explains:

"It speaks to the figures, the stars, the constellations and the moon. It speaks to connection and possibility. It delineates forms and fins, and celestial beings. It too, is a story grounded in an umbilical cord that stretches for miles. The earth is our mother and so too the stars".

Vol 16, No 3 (2017)

Using the OCIES 44 Conference held in Sydney in 2016 as its conversational springboard, this issue explores emergent gaps in thinking about a number of key issues of concern to comparative and international educationalists.

These provocations challenge our practice and our postcolonial, postmodern theorizing and educational engagement with these 'gaps'. In doing so, they open up future rewarding and challenging spaces for our future work together.
