Paul Tarc is Associate Professor in the Critical Policy, Equity and Leadership Studies academic research cluster, Faculty of Education at Western. His main research interests in progressive and critical modes of education are articulated through ‘post’-informed theories of globalization, representation, subjectivity and pedagogy. His first book, Global dreams, enduring tensions: International Baccalaureate (IB) in a changing world (2009), uses the IB as the focal point to historicize the ‘international’ of international education under globalization. In his former profession as a school teacher, Paul taught in South America, South-East Asia and Ontario.
