“Overall, this volume is significant because it reminds scholars that education programmes, which have a history of their own, are not only vital elements of academia, but also have a role as potent elements of power politics.” • History of Education
“The volume is an exciting invitation for mobility scholars to rethink the place of knowledge mobilities within their work. It also provokes readers to consider the variety of ways in which knowledges travel and the various conceptual and methodological frameworks necessary to study them. I have no doubt that Global Exchanges is a long-awaited and important contribution not only for historians of international relations but also for mobility scholars, sociologists, geographers, and anthropologists alike.” • Transfers
“This is an excellent collection that treats an important subject of historical inquiry in a long and truly global context. There is a great array of temporal and geographical examples to be found here which validate the interpretive framework and cumulatively provide a valuable and original survey of ‘the first century of official scholarship.’” • Tomás Irish, Swansea University
Exchanges between different cultures and institutions of learning have taken place for centuries, but it was only in the twentieth century that such efforts evolved into formal programs that received focused attention from nation-states, empires and international organizations. Global Exchanges provides a wide-ranging overview of this underresearched topic, examining the scope, scale and evolution of organized exchanges around the globe through the twentieth century. In doing so it dramatically reveals the true extent of organized exchange and its essential contribution for knowledge transfer, cultural interchange, and the formation of global networks so often taken for granted today.
