The international transfer of human geographical knowledge in the context of shifting academic hegemonies
journal contributionposted on 2018-01-25, 10:10 authored by Heike JonsHeike Jons
This commentary reflects critically on two key challenges of human geographical research—the relationship between academic mobility and international knowledge transfer, and the limitations and opportunities of bi- and multilingualism. Based on a historiographic and (auto)biographic approach, I develop a multidimensional concept of mobility and knowledge transfer between hegemonic and non-hegemonic contexts, and argue that national academic communities remain important in human geography because of different path-dependencies, languages, and time restrictions.
