Academic Mobility, transnational identity capital, and stratification under conditions of Academic capitalismHigher Education, 2017Co-Authors: Terri KimAbstract:
Academic Mobility has existed since ancient times. Recently, however, Academic Mobility—the crossing of international borders by Academics who then work ‘overseas’—has increased. Academics and the careers of Academics have been affected by governments and institutions that have an interest in coordinating and accelerating knowledge production. This article reflects on the relations between Academic Mobility and knowledge and identity capital and their mutual entanglement as Academics move, internationally. It argues that the contemporary movement of Academics takes place within old hierarchies among nation states, but such old hierarchies intersect with new Academic stratifications which will be described and analysed. These analytical themes in the article are supplemented by excerpts from interviews of mobile Academics in the UK, USA, New Zealand, Korea and Hong Kong as selected examples of different locales of Academic capitalism.
Transnational Academic Mobility, knowledge, and identity capitalDiscourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2010Co-Authors: Terri KimAbstract:
This article begins with the contemporary context of transnational Academic Mobility, and sketches a typology of mobile Academics according to their self-identification. UK examples are offered as the main case study here. The article will then explore the relations of mobile Academics and their embodied and encultured knowledge. It employs a concept of ‘transnational identity capital’ to discuss the position of transnational mobile Academic intellectuals as a ‘stranger’ as inspired by Simmel’s sociology of space.
transnational Academic Mobility internationalization and interculturality in higher educationIntercultural Education, 2009Co-Authors: Terri KimAbstract:
The purpose of this paper is to consider the complex relations of transnational Academic Mobility, internationalization and interculturality in higher education. It is argued that, in the contemporaneous relations of the triad, ‘interculturality’ disappears and the other two – transnational Academic Mobility and internationalization – are both enclosed by the market. The contemporary condition and pattern of transnational Academic Mobility are also shaped by neoliberal policy and market‐framed research competition. This paper offers some critical reflections on the new world of mobilities and interculturalities and the ‘new strangers’ in the university.

Transnational Academic Mobility and genderGlobalisation Societies and Education, 2011Co-Authors: Heike JonsAbstract:
This paper examines to what extent the participation of researchers in transnational Academic Mobility, their experiences and perceived outcomes vary by gender. Based on longitudinal statistics, original survey data and semi-structured interviews with former visiting researchers in Germany, the paper shows that the Academic world of female researchers tends to be less international than that of their male colleagues, particularly in the natural sciences. This situation has improved since the 1980s but significant variations remain by source country, subject, career stage and length of stay. The paper argues that the underlying reasons go far beyond direct gender relationships and suggests that conceptualising transnational Academic Mobility as an integral part of mobilisation processes in Latourian ‘centres of calculation’ underlines the need for making this experience accessible to the widest possible range of researchers.
