Higher Education Research as a Field in China: Its Formation and Current Landscape
Chen, Shuang-Ye; Hu, Li-Fang
Higher Education Research and Development, v31 n5 p655-666 2012
This paper outlines the field of higher education research in China from its historical roots through to its current development. It is a case study of how the field of higher education research emerged and was co-constructed by the state and the academic community of higher education researchers to become an established and recognised discipline in a national context. The rise and formation of higher education as a research field in China has been closely related with the substantive growth of the higher education system itself. Knowledge production in the field is currently characterised by being increasingly outward-looking and supported by the state. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
