The production of knowledge, the producers of knowledge, and the institutions traditionally dedicated to its production all operate in an increasingly global context. This session brings together a group of papers that examine the geographies of this process from a number of angles to address questions concerning: how a dispersed global discourse contributes to massive online knowledge compilations; how prominent concepts such as those of political economy take shape in a global context; why the study of expatriate knowledge producers must be understood geographically; how international experiences challenge faculty members in a way that is transformative not only to them but also to the institutions in which they are embedded; and whether the current challenges to the critical and knowledge production missions of universities is enhanced or degraded by gestures of separation from the world.
