About the Author

Karin Murris is Professor of Pedagogy and Philosophy at the School of Education, University of Cape Town, South Africa.


"The Posthuman Child makes an important and timely contribution to the ongoing discussion of an educational vision rooted in life-centred values. In addition, the detailed illustrations and excerpts from students' conversations make Murris's scholarly book valuable. Her message is hopeful and inspirational in providing new directions for teaching and learning that affirm the lived experiences of children. This is a valuable text for educators, counsellors, education program planners, and researchers interested in working with early years and elementary school children."- Karen Magro, Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures
