Higher Education in Small Islands: Challenging the Geographies of Centrality and Remoteness

Rosie Alexander (Editor), Holly Henderson (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This collection pinpoints the intersecting concerns of higher education studies and island studies. It argues for the value of the small island for exploring research and practice in higher education. Presenting analysis of higher education provision in a range of island contexts from across the globe, the book explores the challenges and opportunities of small island higher education and sheds light on the practices and experiences of those involved. It also demonstrates how the small island offers a valuable context from which to explore the scalar dynamics of higher education provision more widely and how these contexts can disrupt normative discourses, understandings and practices in education policy, curricula and experiences.
