Discursivity, international students and representation: Walking through different worlds is a text that will help academics, support services staff and administrative personnel who are involved in the teaching and learning practices of international students. The question it answers is: what constitutes an international student? In relation to this it looks at strategies for internationalising the curriculum at a micro level. It also offers a new approach towards understanding the multiple subject positions of international students whilst at the same time providing an analysis of the ways in which students are identified through various forms of labelling.

‘I suspect that in future, Kumar’s Discursivity, international students and representation, will be seen as a significant point of the departure in the literature, a work that helps to make possible a deeper and better discussion of international education.’
Professor Simon Marginson, Foreword to Discursivity, international students and representation
