Drawing on decolonial studies (Mignolo, 2003; Quijano, 1993, 1992), this presentation problematises the term ‘international collaboration’ in higher education studies with a special focus on Latin America.
In a context of competition for financial resources and prestige and where there are economical and epistemic asymmetries, international collaboration can be seen as problematic.
This presentation focuses on international collaboration in the form of co-authorship of papers in the WoS and SciELO indexes on the topic of higher education reforms within and outside Latin America. Reflections about epistemic circuits and epistemic identities are offered.
All seminars are free and open to the public. No advance booking required.
