Stuck and Sticky in Mobile Academia - Special Issue Launch event with Dr Emily Henderson

This special issue launch panel presents an edited collection of papers on academic mobilities, entitled Stuck and Sticky in Mobile Academia. It has been published in Higher Education and co-edited by Charikleia Tzanakou (Oxford Brookes University) and Emily F. Henderson (University of Warwick). The core aim of this special issue was to explore the assumptions and norms underpinning the concepts of mobility and immobility and think beyond this binary, querying the conceptual certainties that are inherent to discourses around academic mobility itself. In this collection of papers, they have aimed to capture ways in which mobility and immobility intersect and overlap, where an academic may be both mobile and stuck, for instance.

The panel event is taking place on Friday 11 March 2022 12:00-14:00 and you can register to attend onlineLink opens in a new window.
