|Title:||International Schools and the Constitution of Global Subjects in the Asia-Pacific Region||Contributor(s):||Hardy, Joy (author); Tamatea, Laurence Martin (author); Ninnes, Peter Martin (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2065||Abstract:||This paper analyses the various purposes of schooling to which international schools in the Asia-Pacific region subscribe. Whereas international schools started off as institutions catering to the children of western expatriates, new forms of international schools now exist, in response to a wide range of phenomenon, including globalisation. Using a sample of 100 websites of international school in the Asia-Pacific region, we undertook a critical discourse analysis of their expressed purposes of schooling, with a particular emphasis on the kinds of students/citizens/subjects that the schools purported to produce, and the relationship between these subjectivities and various global issues including peace, cultural diversity and environmental sustainability.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Questioning 'best practice' in education: benefits and disadvantages, debates and dilemmas, Novotel Pacific Bay Resort, Coffs Harbour, Australia, 2-4 December 2005||Source of Publication:||Questioning 'best practice' in education: benefits and disadvantages, debates and dilemmas: Proceedings of the 33rd Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society, p. 68-81||Publisher:||Centre for Research on Education in Context, School of Education, University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130302 Comparative and Cross-Cultural Education||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.anzcies.org/about.php#conference_history
