Thesis title: Cosmopolitan capital and global citizenship: British international schooling in post-colonial Southeast Asia
I am completing a part-time PhD alongside working as a Head of Music in a secondary school. I have been teaching in schools, both in the UK and overseas, for 14 years, during which time I have both taught music and worked in senior leadership.
My research looks at British schooling in Southeast Asia (particularly Malaysia and Thailand). I am interested in conceptions of 'international' in schools - particularly the acquisition of cosmopolitan capital and the promotion of global citizenship - and how these phenomena interact in post-colonial spaces.
