Abstract

This chapter considers how the metaphor of research as a maze can be used to extend understandings of the character and significance of contemporary research and the work and identities of contemporary researchers. The authors discuss the implications of the increasing influence of the Western academic system across the globe and argue that the resultant outputs serve the objectives of governments’ and institutions’ internationalisation agendas but may come at a cost, the loss of local and global linguistic and cultural diversity. In concluding the authors offer opportunities for ways in which Western researchers might operate within the knowledge economy with increased integrity.
