Susan L. Robertson




Susan's great passion is researching and writing about the political economy of the education sector – from the global to the regional, local and individual.

Her approach to researching education has been formed out of working as an academic in different parts of the world, including Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and since 1999, as Professor of Sociology of Education, Graduate School of Education, University of Bristol, UK.

As founding Director of the Centre for Globalisation, Education and Societies at the University of Bristol, and founding co-editor (with Roger Dale) of the journal, Globalisation, Societies and Education, she enjoys the challenges involved in developing a critical agenda for the study of globalisation and education. She also works closely with a colleague, Kris Olds, University of Wisconsin, Madison, around many of these issues, including a blog GlobalHigherEd which she hopes keeps you briefed on developments in that sector.

This course is designed to examine an array of issues related to the globalization of higher education and research. The main objective of the course is to enable students to better understand how and why universities are engaged in the globalization process, as well as what the key implications of this development process are.
