Transnational Academic Mobility and Knowledge Networks: Geographical Research and Collaboration Between Britain and Brazil

The project seeks to build a partnership between researchers at Royal Holloway, University of London, and the State University of Rio de Janeiro (UERJ) interested in geography, mobility, gender and internationalism from c.1950 to the present. It draws on my recent research on scientific conferences, internationalism and women geographers in twentieth-century Brazil, addressing (1) how transnational academic mobility impacts knowledge production and reception; (2) how scientific practices are embodied in the international mobility of scholars; (3) to what extent gender has shaped transnational academic mobility and (4) how the geographical mobility of people, practices, concepts and technologies has impacted epistemic cultures historically and today. Exploring the archives of academic mobility and engaging in dialogue with RHUL geographers with expertise on mobility, gender and knowledge will contribute to the development of a collaborative research network, joint workshops, co-authored publications, and further research projects.
