The goal of this article is to understand, by way of a life history, how globalization impacts the working class in a developing nation. The concept of globalization and the method of life history seem diametrically opposed. The author takes issue with the idea that the two concepts are incompatible and instead suggests that life history affords a way to come to terms with globalization that is often missing from large cross-national studies. The author has used life history as a way to understand how one Malaysian low-income working-class youth sees himself in a time fraught with change and ambiguity, and by doing so, hopefully have shed light on how we might employ life history to understand how education is being changed by globalization.
