Stretching the Academic Harness: Knowledge Construction in the Process of Academic Mobility in Chile
Munoz-Garcia, Ana Luisa; Chiappa, Roxana
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v15 n5 p635-647 2017
In this article, we analyse the impact of academic mobility on the construction of knowledge for Chilean scholars who have studied abroad. We conducted 41 semi-structured interviews with Chilean-born scholars in the social sciences and humanities, who accepted jobs at national research universities in Chile after receiving their doctorates abroad. Findings show that international academic mobility allowed these participants to question legitimised ways of doing knowledge, where they can stretch the academic harness that increasingly rules their knowledge construction. Our main argument is that knowledge construction process is neither linear nor unidimensional and it occurs as a rhizomatic process in a multidimensional space.
