Professor of Education at Maynooth since 2014. Educated at McGill and Concordia Universities in Montréal, I have a BA in Art History (1987), Dip Ed in Later Childhood Education (1988), MA in Philosophy of Education (1992) and PhD in Humanities (1996). Previous appointments include Professor of Education with a focus on Internationalisation and Interculturalism at Stockholm University (2004-2014). My interests over the course of my academic life have been interdisciplinary in nature, and I bring into conversation the humanities-based traditions of scholarship with a social science commitment to concrete change and analysis. I have benefited enormously, both personally and professionally, from living in different cultural contexts and how they shape educational policies and practices.
