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.
