Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to investigate interferences between

gender, class, sexuality, and ethnicity among international students

by looking at migration patterns and living conditions of international

master and PhD-students at three Swedish universities (Luleå

University of Technology (LTU), Linköping University (LiU), The

Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)). The experiences of these

students with regard to transnationalism, higher education and

research is a point of departure for discussing global stratification

and transformation in the contemporary neoliberal knowledge

economy. The article interprets the transnational flows of higher

education in relation to a critical understanding of knowledge

society and higher education by introducing the notion of eduscapes.

This concept refers to the contemporary transnational flow

of ideas and people with regard to higher education, and where

nodes of knowledge centres and peripheries shift over time but are

connected through modern communication technologies and

different epistemic, ethnic, and student communities. In the

transnational practices of higher education where students travel

the globe in search and dreams of knowledge, a better life and

future career possibilities, routes and imaginaries to a large extent

reproduce and follow geopolitical power patterns. In this respect

education by going global is shrinking the world but also stratifies,

creating new patterns of inequality and competition.
