Description - Globalizing the Research Imagination by Jane Kenway

In the provocative opening essay Kenway and Fahey explore ways in which the notion of the imagination itself might be mobilized by researchers. They are encouraged to develop 'defiant' global imaginations and communities with the capacities to think, 'be' and 'become' differently in a world of research increasingly governed by rampant reductionist rationality. To support this view there follows a series of detailed interviews with some of the world's leading intellectuals where the editors explore what it might mean to globalize the research imagination. The interviewees, Arjun Appadurai, Raewyn Connell, Doreen Massey, Aihwa Ong, Fazal Rizvi and Saskia Sassen, are foremost in their research fields and their views related here are both influential and inspirational. This thought-provoking book for students and researchers * identifies and critically interrogates the various ways in which globalization reshapes research * investigates the challenges that globalization poses for the social sciences and humanities * creates an understanding of how globalization is transforming the practice of research and doctoral research training Progressive researchers in the social sciences and humanities urgently need to decide for themselves how best to globalize research methodologies and communities, and this book will be an invaluable resource for them.
