Riyad A. Shahjahan is a faculty member in higher, adult and lifelong education. His areas of expertise are in globalization and higher education, teaching and learning in higher education (focusing on anti-oppressive and embodied pedagogy), equity and social justice and anti/postcolonial theory. He has been conducting both empirical and theoretical work, focusing on: a) the role of international organizations (IOs) in globalizing higher education policy through empirical/theoretical analyses of IOs’ current policy initiatives (e.g., the OECD, World Bank, UNESCO, etc.), and b) rethinking the traditional objects of study/practice in higher education from global and non-western critical perspectives, particularly using anti/postcolonial theoretical perspectives.
