Academic Internationalism: U.S. Universities in Transition

A report on consultations convened at the Social Science Research Council, 14 & 17 October 2008

There is no clear social science research agenda or intellectual framework for assessing the globalization of U.S. higher education. Consequently, scholarly discussions of the topic are often anecdotal, conjectural, and highly polemical. The SSRC is running an ambitious research project to address how American universities organize their research and instruction regarding several adjacent world regions: the Milddle East, South Asia, Russia/Eurasia, and Central Asia. This report summarizes the project and discussions of it that took place at a two-day meeting at SSRC headquarters in New York City on 14 and 17 October 2008.
