Biography

Anne Hickling-Hudson’s academic career in the Faculty of Education at QUT spans 25 years. Having retired in 2012, she continues as professor in an adjunct capacity in the School of Cultural and Professional Learning in Education.

Widely published, she is a pioneer in using postcolonial theory as a technique of comparative education. Her research focus is on analysing educational policy and national development, teacher education and the intercultural curriculum, and internationalism/ international mobility in higher education. She has been awarded both international and national fellowships, including a Rockefeller Fellowship and an Australian postdoctoral fellowship, to study and publish on the cultural politics of education in developing countries,including higher education in Cuba. Research grants that she has won include
two large Australian Research Council (ARC) grants to work collaboratively on researching education to counter HIV and AIDS in Papua New Guinea, and a grant from the Office of Learning and Teaching (OLT) to collaborate with three other Australian universities and several state museums and libraries for involving student teachers in an initiative entitled ‘Learning and Teaching in Public Spaces’.

She has been deeply involved in socio-educational reform, curriculum design and the education of teachers in decolonising societies, particularly in the Caribbean and Australia. In the 1980s, she worked with the late Paulo Freire to prepare teachers in the Caribbean for educational change. In Australia she has designed and implemented university courses to prepare educators for teaching and researching international education, and has helped to promote Indigenous studies in teacher education.

Anne plays a national and international role in promoting and facilitating education research and exchange in the profession, having been a past President (2001-2004) of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES), of the British Association of International and Comparative education (BAICE), of the Australia and New Zealand Comparative and International Education Society (ANZCIES), and of the Australian Association for Caribbean Studies (AACS) (2009-2011). She has also been a member of other influential professional associations including the American Educational Research Association (AERA) of which she was chair of the Postcolonial Education SIG, and the USA-based Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) of which she was a Board member.

Anne has given numerous invited keynote conference addresses, conference papers and university guest lectures in countries including: Australia, the UK, Canada, the USA, South Africa, Ghana, Sudan, Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, Cuba, China, Nepal, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan.
