Confirmed speakers include: Dr Maggi Leung (Universiteit Utrecht), Dr Anni Kajanus (London School of Economics and Harvard University), Dr Peidong Yang (Nanyang Technological University) and Dr Cora Lingling Xu (Keele University)

In this first seminar, our speakers will focus on the nuanced, day-to-day corporal experiences of individuals involved in the processes of China’s educational (im)mobilities. The political and social migration in China will be foregrounded because of the significance of migration to issues of class stratification/urban and rural divide. We will invite speakers to share their empirical insights into the embodied experiences, struggles and benefits of social agents undergoing various forms of educational mobilities or education in situ within the Chinese contexts. Such individuals can include migrants, international students and/or academics from and within China, Chinese and foreign students or scholars on international branch campuses or collaborative programmes in China and/or students and academics who move across different regions of China.
