Establishing a Research Cluster on Language, (im)Mobility and Internationalised Higher Education in the Post-Globalization Era

This proposed project, taking a socio-political and economic perspective, aims to tackle the tensions between heterogeneity and homogeneity in higher education and to explore how the local, translocal and global will be redefined and subsequently influence teaching and learning practices and policy making, within the physical mobility constraints (e.g., as resulting from a global pandemic), the global neoliberalism, and the political as well as ideological discourses worldwide. Considering internationalised universities as contact zones where different actors (students and teachers) bring their agendas, stakes and resources, this proposed study examines the existence of different forms of mobility and multilingualism in internationalised universities and explore the ways in which mobility and languages are hierarchized in daily encounters, language practices in language and educational policies.
