CGHE UCL Seminar

Higher Education, Knowledge Production and Geopolitics in Latin America

Date: Monday, 22 April 2024 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Location: Room C3.09, UCL Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL
Speaker(s):
  • Gustavo E. Fischman, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University
  • Mario Azevedo, State University of Maringá (Paraná, Brazil)

This is an in-person seminar in London.

Higher education has been closely entwined in geopolitics in recent years, playing a key role in soft power, knowledge diplomacy and transnational business interests globally. Latin America has been an intriguing example in this regard, on the one hand with high levels of privatisation and a history of colonial and neo-colonial injustices, and on the other with strong democratic initiatives, international solidarity and defence of the public sphere. The seminar debates these issues, starting with two presentations from leading voices in the field, focusing on internationalisation of higher education and academic publishing respectively. There will then be an open discussion with the participants on key issues arising such as rankings, languages, regionalisation and South-South partnerships.
