MigMob-workshop: Mobilities and immobilities, knowledge and education

Organized jointly by The Mobility and Education Research Unit, Danish School of Education & Migration and Mobility Network Arts, AU

Dato tor 14 dec
Tid 10:00 16:00
Sted DPU, Campus Emdrup

The seminar addresses the ways in which the mobility and immobility of individuals, knowledge and ideas are reshaping the world and how this can contribute to either challenge or reinforce global hierarchies and hegemonies of knowledge. We look at mobility from a double-edged perspective: mobility for knowledge (strategies and practices of people who travel for the purpose of acquiring new knowledge in for example educational migration and academic staff exchange) and mobility of knowledge (when knowledge, intended and unintended, travel through for example internationalization programs, capacity-building projects, transnational education or other institutional structures). Often mobility for and mobility of knowledge go hand-in-hand, when individuals bring home ideas and knowledge from their stays abroad or when geographically immobile people are exposed to new knowledge through institutional arrangements, which rest on an idea of mobile knowledge.
