From Homemaking to Solidarity: Global Engagement as Common Good in an Age of Global Populism

Pages 67-80 | Published online: 03 Jan 2018


The challenging and rapidly evolving times in which we live require that students understand, analyze, and address the complex realities facing their nation and world. However, efforts in global learning have primarily focused on expansion of programs rather than student learning and meaningful community engagement. Building on Bouma-Prediger and Walsh's (Citation2003) essay entitled, “Education for Homelessness or Homemaking: The Christian College in a Postmodern Culture,” this article explores how global engagement models can establish local and global community partnerships for the common good. It also explores how glocalization pedagogies can expand concepts of homemaking and solidarity to reflect important recent trends in development and higher education.


1 A term originally coined by Wendell Berry, in The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture (San Francisco, CA: Sierra Club Books, 1986).

2 I draw on usage of Global North and Global South as well as Northern and Southern to refer, respectively, to those countries often considered developed or developing. Appropriate terminology in a complex world is an ongoing challenge (Silver, 2015).

3 The term transnational has entered scholarly literature as a reference to international organizations (usually, international nongovernmental organizations) that “transcend” the idea of a nation-state.

4 Often attributed to Lila Watson, who has said she was “not comfortable being credited for something that had been born of a collective process”—the attribution here is the one she accepts.
