Mobilizing Whiteness: Race, Futurity and Globalization of Higher Education
Amid growing debates about globalization of higher education, an analysis of race as a structural force underlying this global phenomenon remains undertheorized. This presentation provides a critical race temporal account of globalization of higher education by critically examining mobility trends in global higher education, namely: (a) mobility of imaginaries, (b) mobility of people, and © mobility of resources. It demonstrates how Whiteness as futurity colonizes (or orients) global subjects’ imaginaries and reinforces the asymmetrical movements, networks, and untethered economies underpinning global higher education.
