Kristensen, Regnar – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2020
Serendipity should not be restricted to cutting-edge science and research alone. A proactive approach to the unexpected can also strengthen classes in anthropology and the humanities.

Studies often highlight how standardisation and consent are manufactured through the European Bologna Process (Brøgger 2019; Gibbs et al. 2014; Lawn and Grek 2012). This article shows how students' conduct is still governed by multiple logics and dilemmas. The context for the article is the Bologna Process and the way it has been applied by the…

Muñoz-García, Ana Luisa – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2019
This article aims to analyse the multiple ways in which the neoliberal regulation of knowledge is negotiated by returning Chilean scholars.

Adriansen, Hanne Kirstine; Madsen, Lene Møller – Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, 2019
This article studies issues of coloniality in so-called capacity-building projects between universities in Africa and Scandinavia.
