Sociologist at University of Hyderabad, Prof. Aparna Rayaprol has been invited as an expert on internationalization of education to speak at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia.
Prof. Rayaprol, who is the former director of the pioneering Study-in-India Program at UoH, will be delivering a special lecture at a forum on Australia–India Student Mobility: Experiences, Lessons and Transformations on 26-27 June 2018. This forum, supported by the Australia-India Council, analyzes intercultural encounters in the context of expanding Australia-India student mobility. It draws on details of student experiences – both Australian students in India and Indian students in Australia – and includes visual/video memories. It will feature students from several institutions and discussion with experts including Prof. Rayaprol. The forum draws on research undertaken by Deakin University researchers, Dr Liudmila Kirpitchenko, Dr Michele Lobo, and Professor David Lowe.
Prof. Rayaprol will also be speaking at a panel on the Indian Diaspora at University of Melbourne.
