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.
Shifting patterns of transnational Academic Mobility: a comparative and historical approachComparative Education, 2009Co-Authors: Terri KimAbstract:
This article is an initial attempt to illustrate how patterns of Academic Mobility in the history of universities have been framed by the international politics of particular time periods. The article briefly looks at ‘the medieval period’ and then at the emergent colonial and nationalist periods, including the ways that institutions as well as Academics themselves were mobile. More contemporaneously the powerful political forces of both the interwar period and the Cold War period (which are well known) are sketched. The final part of the article shows in some detail how, in the contemporary period, the scale and speed of cross‐border Academic Mobility has changed. There are new actors and new ideologies. What is clear from the article is that there is not merely a need to keep information about the flows of Academics up to date for policy purposes. It is also clear that we are a long way from being able to theorise the problem, sociologically and comparatively.

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.

Poster: Preparation of Engineering University Students for Academic Mobility to French UniversitiesAdvances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, 2020Co-Authors: Natalia V. Kraysman, Farida T. Shageeva, Gulnara R. Mullakhmetova, Andrei B. PichuginAbstract:
The paper focuses on the practice of preparing Kazan National Research Technological University students for Academic Mobility to universities of France and development of a language training program to facilitate the students’ Academic Mobility. Every year, several KNRTU students, after completing the undergraduate studies, leave to do the Masters at French universities. In order to better prepare students for Academic Mobility to French universities, French teachers have developed a special training program, aiming to make it easier for students to continue their studies at universities and everyday life in France. The paper shows the methodology of the educational program of preparation for Academic Mobility. Besides, KNRTU French teachers have developed a program to prepare students for international DELF (B1, B2) exam to gain an international diploma, as students have the right to study at French universities only with these international diplomas.
Poster: Social-Psychological Readiness of Engineering University Students for Academic Mobility to European CountriesAdvances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, 2020Co-Authors: Farida T. Shageeva, Diliara R. Erova, Natalia V. KraysmanAbstract:
The paper focuses on theoretical substantiation and experimental testing of the pedagogical conditions for effective formation and development of the social-psychological readiness of future engineers for Academic Mobility, and also on developing the stages for gradual formation of the social-psychological readiness of engineering university students for Academic Mobility in European countries. We have presented the pedagogical conditions for phased social-psychological preparation of engineering university students for Academic Mobility. These conditions reflect the gradual formation of the motivational, cognitive, personality-active, and communicative components of social-psychological readiness of future engineers for Academic Mobility. We have developed a new Academic discipline “The Psychology of Success” and its didactic support. This discipline is introduced into the curriculum of future engineers at Kazan National Research Technological.
Socio-Psychological Readiness for Academic Mobility of Engineering StudentsInteractive Collaborative Learning, 2017Co-Authors: Farida T. Shageeva, Diliara R. Erova, Inna M. Gorodetskaya, Liliya Vasilievna PrikhodkoAbstract:
The goal of the given study was to develop, justify and test pedagogical conditions for effective formation of socio-psychological readiness for Academic Mobility (SPRAM) of engineering students. SPRAM of engineering students is studied as an integrative personal characteristics that includes stable motivation; psychological knowledge and skills; self-regulation and self-management mechanisms; need for application of the acquired knowledge of technologies and methods; professional competences and language proficiency; abilities for independent performance, planning and effective implementation in the Academic and working environment; capability to communicate successfully, resolve social situations and choose relevant communicational strategies.

The Conditions of Movement: A Discussion of Academic Mobility between Two Early Career Scholars.Higher Education Quarterly, 2016Co-Authors: Bryan Gopaul, Meghan J. PiferAbstract:
Academic Mobility is an increasingly crucial topic to the current and future dynamics of doctoral study and the professoriate. Much of the research has focused on US, UK and European contexts. This research explores Academic Mobility and the manifold issues that arise between the jurisdictions of Canada and the US, in ways that parallel and diversify previous research based on various understandings of Mobility. The qualitative perspective is grounded in a reflective narrative approach that enables exploration of powerful themes. The findings indicate that there are costs, tensions and benefits to Academic Mobility that serve to emphasise specific personal and professional elements to the pursuit of Academic life that need explicit articulation. These findings encourage additional scholarly and practical attention to the changing nature of doctoral study and of Academic work and life across jurisdictions.
