This chapter examines how the transnational framework can be applied to study abroad. It is contended that transnationalism can be used to engage with how study abroad impacts the lives and activities of mobile people as different spatialities are activated and used. Taking a sample set of international students, the ways these students can be considered to be transnational agents are discussed. It is argued that moving on from methodologically constrained approaches to student mobility, the transnational framework can offer a means of engaging more fully with mobile language learners in contemporary Europe.

Abstract

This chapter examines how the transnational framework can be applied to study abroad. It is contended that transnationalism can be used to engage with how study abroad impacts the lives and activities of mobile people as different spatialities are activated and used. Taking a sample set of international students, the ways these students can be considered to be transnational agents are discussed. It is argued that moving on from methodologically constrained approaches to student mobility, the transnational framework can offer a means of engaging more fully with mobile language learners in contemporary Europe.
