“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.

Ludovic Tournès is Professor of International History at the University of Geneva. As a specialist of cultural and scientific transnational circulations, cultural diplomacy, and US-Europe relations, he has published five books, most recently Les Etats-Unis et la Société des Nations: le système international face à l’émergence d’une superpuissance (Peter Lang, 2015).

Giles Scott-Smith is Professor of Transnational Relations and New Diplomatic History at Leiden University, and Dean of Leiden University College.
