Abstract

Since the 1990s, not only have China's universities become more in line with global standards but they now set them in some areas. This paper looks at how the production of space in Chinese higher education is employed in “new era” China to manage contested sites of globalization. From the spatial practice of scholarship to the representational spaces that map the educational bureaucracy, the production of space in Chinese higher education helps to organize social relations. This paper argues that the production of space in Chinese higher education is used to manage conflicts between global flows and localization as well as to serve national priorities. The paper contributes to ongoing discussions of the globalization of higher education and cultural studies of space and spatiality in contemporary China.

摘要

摘要

自20世纪90年代以来,中国的大学不仅越来越符合全球标准,在一些领域,它们现在也制定了这些标准。本文探讨了 “新时代” 中国如何利用中国高等教育的空间生产来管理全球化的竞争场所。从学术的空间实践到反映教育官僚主义的具象空间,中国高等教育的空间生产有助于组织社会关系。本文认为,空间生产用于管理全球流动与本地化之间的冲突,以及为国家优先事项服务。本文有助于当前高等教育全球化的讨论和当代中国空间与空间的文化研究。
