Episode 3 - Racialization and spaces of exclusion in international higher education with Dr Shanshan Jiang

In this episode, we are joined by Dr Shanshan Jiang to discuss the racism, xenophobia, and other forms of exclusion international students are subjected to when attending university in the United States. The resurgence of nationalism and the increased targeting of students of colour in academic, residential, and social spaces is explored alongside the navigation of predominantly white campuses by international students who are objectified as capital and diversity signifiers. The relationship between students, teachers, and policy implications are discussed.
