Abstract

Editor’s note – this editorial was written before Donald Trump was elected President Elect of the United States. Billy Bragg recently spoke of the ‘unintended consequences’ of Brexit, starting with Trump and likely continuing in France where Marine Le Pen is confident of evoking Brexit + Trump +++. Whilst this piece reflects on the implications for the related fields of media and media education in the light of Brexit, the situation has, of course, moved on. Perhaps the assumptions on which our key conceptual framework hinge, that the global education project mirrors broader egalitarian objectives to distribute cultural capital, provide equality of opportunity, respect diversity and resist prejudice, aren’t so sacred after all?
