|Title:||Paradoxical inscriptions of global subjects: critical discourse analysis of international schools' websites in the Asia-Pacific Region||Contributor(s):||Tamatea, Laurence Martin (author); Hardy, Joy (author); Ninnes, P (author)||Publication Date:||2008||DOI:||10.1080/17508480802040241||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2096||Abstract:||This paper presents an analysis of Asia-Pacific international school web pages, and explores the expressed purposes of schooling, with regard to the kinds of students/subjects that the schools purport to produce. Using the concept of globalization as a 'master' analytical frame, it is argued that despite claims to offering students unique experiences, international school web pages reproduce similar discourses in the construction of the student as an individual, member of a community and world-changing global citizen. Importantly, it is argued that while such discourses are often contradictory, this is nowhere more exemplified than in the claims to produce global citizens.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Critical Studies in Education, 49(2), p. 157-170||Publisher:||London||Place of Publication:||Taylor & Francis||ISSN:||1750-8495||Field of Research (FOR):||160809 Sociology of Education||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 277
