Globalisation and International Higher Education: Contested Positionings
Dixon, Mary
Journal of Studies in International Education, v10 n4 p319-333 2006
This article stems from recent policy research involving participants in an international higher education program. Story lines of the program from Thai and Australian policy makers and policy actors are interpreted from a poststructural stance. Through the multiple and shifting positionings of the participants, agency and identity within this globalised space is constructed and reconstructed. The study contributes constructions of the relationship between globalisation and international higher education previously obscured by the apparent domination of the neoliberal discourse. Possibilities for international higher education as constructive of globalisation are encountered in these policy readings. (Contains 1 note and 1 figure.)
