CGHE Webinar 32

Global regionalisms and higher education: from projects to politics and theory

Date: Thursday, 27 October 2016 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Location: Committee Room 1, UCL Institute of Education
Speaker(s):
  • Susan L. Robertson, University of Cambridge
  • Roger Dale, University of Bristol
  • Que Anh Dang, University of Bristol

Drawing on their recently published book on Global regionalisms and higher education (published by Edward Elgar, 2016) Robertson, Dale and Dang argue that despite the proliferation of various region-building projects around the world as a reaction to globalisation – from Europe to Latin America, Africa and Asia – that there has been very little, if any, systematic engagement by higher education scholars in theorising these developments.

The presenters outline some lines of theoretical and empirical enquiry developed by the different authors in the book, which open up some new ways of thinking about regionalisms and inter-regionalisms, where higher education is both a key sector in regional development.

Collectively the chapters make the case that globally, higher education is being transformed by regionalising and inter-regionalising projects aimed at resolving ongoing economic, political and cultural challenges within and beyond national territorial states.
