I recently gave a guest lecture at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore to a group of sociology of education students (on 10 March 2017). This was part of a series of invited lectures on topical issues in critical education. Past lectures included critical pedagogies in Singapore (Mark Baildon), talent war and migrant labour (Yasmin Ortiga), and Singapore school curricular policies (Charleen Chiong). My lecture contributes to this series through a focus on “transnationalization of higher education”, with a focus on what the “transnational” in scholarship around higher educational change means as well as underlining the under-studied youth question in extant literature. I used the case studies of private higher education and liberal arts experiments in Asia-Singapore to illustrate my lecture content.
