Areas of Expertise

I am a philosopher of education who brings theoretical texts and arguments to bear on matters relating to schooling in society. My work also focuses on global processes and the nature and diversity of human experience. My first two single-authored books (both with Routledge) are Muslims and Islam In US Education: Reconsidering Multiculturalism and Questioning Allegiance: Resituating Civic Education. I am currently working on a third book which will be published with Cambridge University Press and is entitled Against Virtue: The Politics of Educating Emotions. I have also recently edited the books From 'Aggressive Masculinity' to 'Rape Culture': An Educational Philosophy and Theory Reader and Feminist Theory in Diverse Productive Practices (both with Michael A. Peters). 

My research has been recognised through awards including the Research Output Prize for Education at the University of Hong Kong and the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia Book Award. I also serve as an editor for the CERC Series in Comparative Studies in Education (Springer) and New Directions in the Philosophy of Education (Routledge), and as Deputy Editor of for the leading journal in philosophy of education, Educational Philosophy and Theory. I am President Elect for the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia and the Director of the Comparative Education Research Centre.​

I have experience working in the USA, England, ​Scotland, Mexico, Turkey, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, and Hong Kong. I grew up in Oregon, USA, and did my MPhil at the University of Cambridge in 'Politics, Democracy and Education', and my PhD in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
