Research Interests

My primary area of research is internationalization of higher education; my research interests span international education, internationalization of curriculum, social education, anti-racist and multicultural education, globalization, postcolonial theory, pedagogy in post-secondary institutions, and the ethics of care.

I am interested in how the experiences of those who participate in international education and internationalization processes can inform ways in which we understand and practice internationalization.

The courses I teach reflect these diverse and inter-related interests: intercultural and international education, contemporary issues in curriculum, multicultural and anti-racist education, the politics of difference, secondary social studies, and teaching for social justice (with the Professional Development Program).
