28 SES 12, Europeanization and Educational Knowledge/Practice: Naming and Claiming an Academic Field
Malaysia’s higher education space is expanding with increasing student mobility and transnational higher education (TNHE) activities amidst the government’s call for national transformation to address new internationalisation priorities. It is also part of ASEAN’s regional education space, inspired by European regionalisation to promote student flow, quality frameworks, and research. A new TNHE typology in Malaysia is the dual degree by local private institutions with UK universities which exemplifies the continuing European influence on Malaysian TNHE. What is transnational curriculum making about in Malaysia’s higher education space? What does it mean to curriculum workers who navigate between the requirements of the government and the local and UK partners? What are the discourses on the nationalising, regionalising, and internationalising imperatives and practices in this space? Through interviews with curriculum workers involved in the making of transnational dual degrees, their narratives elucidate their experiences and meanings of how they navigate the shifts and flows in transnational curriculum work. This paper uses curriculum history to understand the emerging curriculum as text that is framed by the national, transnational, and governmental discourses. I argue that a Malaysian transnationalism is emerging from the curriculum negotiations with the priorities for internationalism and regionalism in this space.
