Abstract

Highlighting South Korea’s transition from a recipient to a donor country of ODA in 2010, this study examines the two cases of cross-national university knowledge sharing and production in Korea: One with the US and the other with Tanzania. While the study entails qualitative approaches such as ethnography, participant observation, and semi-structured interviews, the theoretical framework is drawn from Bourdieu’s concepts of symbolic powers and habitus. The findings suggest that economic, social, and cultural capital both promotes and hampers cross-national knowledge sharing and production among developed, developing, and bridging countries. In addition, this study argues that actors from a bridge country (Korea) contribute to the cross-national knowledge sharing and production by balancing structural discrepancies through different forms of agency. As for the contribution, in-depth analysis of findings with Bourdieu’s framework of structure and agency offers unique insights to literatures regarding cross-national university collaborations and development, and relevant S&T policies.
