About the seminar:
This paper is drawn from a wider research project which problematises the discourse of 'internationalisation' in higher education (Haigh 2014) by drawing on issues of geopolitics and the digital. Philippa will argue that, in order to open up new ways of thinking about internationalisation through the digital, we first need to recognise the complex practices of making education international.
