  • Publisher: Springer

This book examines both the theory and applications of marketing higher education in a global environment. Universities and colleges face new challenges in student recruitment and international competition. This book is designed to offer new insights into international marketing of higher education. With declining domestic enrollments and continuing funding cuts, many higher education institutions are exploring new ways to market and promote themselves to international students. Higher education institutions view international students not only as a source of revenue, but also as an integral part of an overall academic strategy. While international students face many destination choices, they normally choose universities and colleges in developed countries such as the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. The international marketing of higher education is of growing importance to universities and colleges today.

Rhetoric and the Global Turn in Higher Education

  • Type: Book
  • -
  • Published: 2018-03-09
  • -
  • Publisher: Springer

This book studies the role of rhetoric in the expansive movement for global higher education in U.S. colleges and universities. Drawing on an analysis of how discourses of security, economy, and ethics shape the rhetoric of global higher education, as well as that of its populist and nationalist critics, the author argues for an understanding of global higher education as a site of rhetorical conflict over visions of students as citizens. In doing so, the work advances the project of transnational rhetorical education, a theoretical and pedagogical project that can foster forms of rhetorical inquiry, performance, and ethics that equip students to pursue transnational forms of civic engagement, belonging, and resistance. This book will be of interest to scholars and students in the fields of rhetoric and composition studies, communication, and education, as well as to faculty and administrators working in global higher education or internationalization programs.

Gender and Empire

One of the first single-authored books to survey the role of sex and gender in the 'new imperial history', Gender and Empire covers the whole British Empire, demonstrating connections and comparisons between the white-settler colonies, and the colonies of exploitation and rule. Through key topics and episodes across a broad range of British Empire history, Angela Woollacott examines how gender ideologies and practices affected women and men, and structured imperial politics and culture. Woollacott integrates twenty years of scholarship, providing fresh insights and interpretation using feminist and postcolonial approaches. Fiction and other vivid primary sources present the voices of historical subjects, enlivening discussions of central topics and debates in imperial and colonial history. The circulation of imperial culture and colonial subjects along with conceptions of gender and race reveals the integrated nature of British colonialism from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. Authoritative and approachable, this is essential reading for students of world history, imperial history and gender relations.
