Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter brings together an ensemble of recollections and reflections recognising the work and educational life across Stephen’s career. These reflections are reminiscences that stretch from his days at Graduate School at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the USA in the early 1970s, to his work at the Centre for Applied Research in Education (CARE) in the mid-70s in the UK, to his continuing and steadfast commitment to securing a genuinely, culturally respected life for Australian Indigenous peoples and his work invested in securing environmental sustainability for future generations. Between and through their lines lies a dynamic portrayal of an educational life with words flowing across continents, through time and around blue lounges.
