This event is now archived and we are pleased to provide the following event media and assets, along with the original event overview.

This session is an introduction to the forthcoming Special Issue: ‘Diaspora and Internationalisation in Higher Education’ in British Journal of Educational Studies, which is an outcome of the BAICE Thematic Forum held in 2019 and 2020.

Paul Morris will introduce both the forthcoming Special Issue in BJES, on which this Seminar is based and the three speakers who will present their papers.

Annette will explore recent developments in diaspora theorization in the humanities and social sciences. She will connect this burgeoning body of literature with internationalisation in higher education, presenting insights from a systematic review on the current role of diaspora in internationalisation and higher education research. She will conclude by indicating the potential of diaspora for theorizing different forms of internationalisation.

Terri’s talk will be on ‘diaspora, ethnic internationalism and HE internationalisation’ by separating ‘nation’ and ‘state’ and with a critical appropriation of diasporic subjectivity and institutions from a comparative historical perspective. She will take the Korean and Jewish cases as examples of stateless nations in the early 20th century (Kim and Bamberger, 2021 forthcoming), to explain the notion of ‘ethnic internationalism’ and the role of ‘ethnonational diaspora’ in forming and internationalising HE in the absence of a supportive status apparatus and discuss its implications for the 21st century.

Fazal will consider how higher education is a site where internationalization has become a major driver for the formation of new diasporas. He will show how these diasporas use their training and ethnic networks to take advantage of the transnational space they occupy in an increasingly globalized economy.
