Abstract: This research takes student migration as a site to study globalizing education spaces. First, I examine how everyday temporalities in the lives of young Southeast Asian migrant students shape the ways they articulate their education migration experiences and futures in geographically and temporally sensitive ways. Second, I identify key transnational practices involved in the maintenance of intimacy to show how personal relationships are constantly made and re-made through changing socio-spatial and temporal demands. The motivations, mobilities and experiences of education migration, and the diverse transnational connectivities that they are refracted through, are highly differentiated and constantly (re)made through the changing configurations of time and space. This underlines the complex and contingent processes that are involved in the production of human subjectivities and relations at the heart of student migration. My research is conducted in Singapore using in-depth interviews, diaries/blogs, and informal (online) conversations.
