As an ‘international’ student of comparative education, I entered the field of comparative international education, bringing with me a very different academic tradition and cultural history. There was a reason I had come into the fi eld with my own small stories, thinking they meant something in a larger canvas, and I was not alone: other students came with other small stories. Following from the idea of mini-narratives as a response to metanarratives, this chapter is explores the ideas of academic marginality in Comparative Education studies, and discusses the possibilities offered by emerging post-structural pedagogies, such as social cartography.
