Internationalization of Higher Education – An Analysis through Spatial, Network, and Mobilities Theories

Larssen M. A., ‘Internationalization of Higher Education. An Analysis through Spatial, Network, and Mobilities Theories’. Palgrave Macmillan 2017. ISBN 978-1-137-53344-9

This book provides a cutting-edge analysis of the ways in which higher education institutions have become more international over the past two decades. Drawing upon a range of post-foundational spatial, network, and mobilities theories, the book shifts our thinking away from linear, binary, Western accounts of internationalization to understand the complex, multi-centered and contradictory ways in which internationalization processes have played out across a wide variety of higher education landscapes worldwide. The author explores transnational student, scholar, knowledge, program and provider mobilities; the production of mobile bodies, knowledges, and identities; the significance of place in internationalization; and the crucial role that global university rankings play in reshaping the spatial landscape of higher education.
