Shaping the Agenda for International Higher Education Research

Tuesday, 26 June 2018

IRR (International Research and Researchers), the SRHE network devoted to international issues, has traditionally convened events related to (i) higher education in different country contexts and (ii) global and transnational higher education issues. SRHE is delighted to welcome two new IRR network convenors this year, Ye Liu and Josef Ploner, who have joined Emily Henderson to form the new convening group.

To mark this new era for IRR, you are invited to contribute to discussions about which themes and issues the network should address in the future. One of our goals for IRR is to establish a core membership; researchers and practitioners working in the field of international higher education are invited to this event, in order to contribute to the aspirations for the IRR network.

The papers in the showcase represent the two strands of the IRR network remit: Ye Liu (Kings College London) will present on university students and civic engagement in the context of Chinese higher education, while Josef Ploner’s (University of Hull) paper addresses the transnational context of international student mobility to the UK, including the development of the concept of academic hospitality. Emily Henderson’s paper spans both strands by focusing on research culture and access to spaces of global knowledge production. The event will conclude with a discussion of the papers by Elaine Unterhalter (Director of the Centre for Education and International Development, UCL Institute of Education), framed as a prompt for a wider discussion of the priorities and ambitions for the IRR network.
