Congratulations to EDST’s Dr. Amy Metcalfe for being awarded the 2018 Award for Significant Research on International Higher Education from the Council for International Higher Education (CIHE) of the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE). Amy received the award in recognition of her article, “Nomadic political ontology and transnational academic mobility,” published in Critical Studies in Education.
The award recognizes a highly significant research outcome in the field of international higher education. From the award citation: “The article is state-of-the-art knowledge and challenges current thinking, framing, and approaches to academic mobility through its “heretical” centering of the (academic) body and the epistemic and ontological changes that take place at the level of the individual. The article is innovative not only in concept but in academic writing style, and holds great potential to serve as a model for future research.”
