The Irony of Globalization: The Experience of Japanese Women in British Higher Education.
Habu, Toshie
Higher Education, v39 n1 p43-66 Jan 2000
Informal interviews and ethnographic research were used to identify motivations and experiences of 25 Japanese women studying in Britain. Finds motivations and experiences were influenced by forces of globalization including economic, cultural, and intellectual factors. Suggests that the mutual educational advantages of cross cultural contact are undermined by a reductive, narrowly economic view of foreign students. (Author/DB)
