Saul Karnovsky is an experienced pre-service teacher educator and early career researcher, specialising in the fields of pedagogy, curriculum & instruction and professional practice. He is a Doctoral candidate at Curtin University’s School of Education, currently developing a thesis which explores pre-service teacher emotions in learning to teach. In his research Saul draws upon post-structural theory to examine how emotions emerge within the modern neo-liberal contexts of schooling from the historical, social and political processes in which they are enacted. He embraces an alternative ontological space, seeking to deeply engage with new ideas and different theoretical perspectives of education.
