The intellect, mobility and epistemic positioning in doing comparisons and comparative education
Kim, T. 2014. The intellect, mobility and epistemic positioning in doing comparisons and comparative education. Comparative Education. 50 (1), pp. 58-72.
This article offers a reflexive analysis and discussion on the relationship between academic mobility and comparative knowledge creation. It argues that what constitutes ‘comparative knowledge’ is not solely Wissenschaften but more often entwined with Weltanschauungen, derived from lived experiences – as exemplified in the biographic narratives of some of the major intellects. It reviews the notions of the ‘gaze’ and the concepts of the Other and Homeworld/Alienworld as epistemic positioning in doing comparative education. In the framework of phenomenological thinking, the paper discusses the intimate relationship between comparative knowledge and positional knowledge.
