Abstract

In this chapter, we explore schooling in the postcolonial context as a particular type of cultural artifact. Eschewing dominant qualitative research tendencies that privilege the word and the text over the visual and the physical, we argue that deeper complexities and nuances come to the fore when we focus on the visual fields, noting that the visual field is always a production enmeshed within a social context.
