Models of transnational scholarly "cooperation": a site of geopolitical struggles?
Making the university matter
Lugar: Londres; Año: 2011; p. 219 - 227
This paper deals with transnational flows and networks of knowledge. It departs from the analyses of local or national specific settings and of the university and its place vis-à-vis localized societal demands and expectations, focusing on academic influences and exchanges between institutions and scholars located in different places of the world geopolitical scene. My argument is based on the history of the international links, flows and networks in which Latin American social scientists and social science institutions have been involved during the last half century, taking into consideration developments and discussions in other parts of the world. The issues to be discussed deal with the existing patterns of exchange and with the possibilities and opportunities for alternative ways of cooperation. Are there sites of resistance? Are horizontal links possible? Are there counter hegemonic forms of collaboration in the making? Can there be transnational North-South scholarly alliances that could reshape unequal hierarchical flows?
