In what ways then do our research questions maintain the rigid articulation between subjects and certain places, to certain times and its articulations? Bodies in Motion intends to rescue the notion that interviews are “spatial practices” (Clifford, 1988), and as such need to be understood as “time practices” as well. Both, time and space provide a position for the speaker to organize their experiences to be narrated and for the researcher to make sense of it. In other words, the interviewee and the researcher perform specific spaces and times.

Describing how international students’ difficulties affect their academic performance, how language is an important element in their “adaptation,” and the many cultural crises to which international students are exposed seemed increasingly less compelling to me, for I realized these studies failed to capture the complexity of the Methodological Twists 29 improvization and agency bodies enact under these circumstances. By the time I started to formulate my research questions I had been in my graduate program for three years and the problems of international students, how they were perceived and in what ways they were reconstructing themselves, became more important to me.

I argue that internationalization discourses produce certain institutional subjectivities and practices due to their implicit ideas about time and space embedded on their dominant definitions. These dimensions have been understood in separate and hierarchical modes, which mean that producing accounts of meaningful experiences with institutional progress necessitates the advancement of an understanding that sees space as a key element of the showing up of the world1 (Massey, 2005) and time as the succession of predictable pasts, presents, and futures (Grosz, 1999).
