Imagining Time and Space in Universities : Bodies in Motion (Hardcover) (Claudia Matus)
About this item
Imagining Time and Space in Universities offers a critical analysis using theories of time and space to understand the implications of dominant ways to use discourses of internationalization in the construction of normative ideas. Limited attention has been given to cultural meanings embedded in institutional policies and practices, as the dominant way to address issues of internationalization in universities has been largely structural, managerial, and administrative. These ideas of the international student, the revitalization of discourses of nation, the consolidation of notions of progress, the reinscription of traditional performances of gender, and the proliferation of imaginations of the stranger provide a site to discuss how cultural narratives are constructed and reproduced by internationalization policies and practices in higher education.
