Pedagogic possibilities of new diaspora formations and transnationalism

4 October 2017

Hosted by the school of Education and Social Work's research networks for Comparative and International Education (CoInEd); and School and Teacher Education Policy (STEP).

Migration is not what it used to be. Advances in transport and communication technologies have transformed the nature of migrant experiences, enabling globally mobile people to remain in touch with each other across vast distances and national borders, transforming their sense of belonging, stretching their imagination and aspirations. It has also ‘transnationalised’ the nature of our classrooms and schools. In this talk, invited speaker Professor Fazal Rizvi will draw on recent academic writings about migration, diaspora and transnationalism to examine the pedagogic challenges and opportunities associated with the dynamic conditions of transnational mobility.
