We are very grateful to our friends at the Society for Research into Higher Education blog for running a ‘virtual symposium’ of linked blog posts from the authors in our recent special issue entitled “Experts, knowledge and criticality in the age of ‘alternative facts’: re-examining the contribution of higher education”. The posts were published through February to May 2019 and we’ve brought them together here in a single place to make it easier to find them.

- Wisam Abdul-Jabbar: The intercultural deterritorialisation of knowledge: Al-Ghazali and the enunciation of the educator’s Rihla
