This chapter argues that a promising step towards reducing the harm that stems from theorising as if standpoint does not matter is to discover the ways in which local and global are mutually constituted. To rehabilitate research with international students into the dialogic arena opened up by the global-local continuum, I recommend putting place back in focus.
I explore the potential of the dialectic between the global and the local to realign research with practice and to nurture context-sensitive conceptualisation. Research with international students which harnesses the rich insights stemming from marginality and not belonging, the chapter hopes to demonstrate, in turn generates transformative understandings of all levels of analysis including the global and local and further nudges us towards anchoring knowledge creation in relational ontologies.
