his article considers some of the ways in which the transformative power of Web 2.0 digital technology is reconfiguring learning, knowl- edge and academic identities in the contemporary university. Through a focus on five specific examples, we consider the impact of virtualization processes on spatiality, materiality and embodiment, and pedagogic rela- tions. We argue for the benefits of taking a microsociological approach in order to reflect on the potential of virtualization to bring about new geographies of knowledge production and as a means to identify the ways in which potential transformations are uneven, problematic and contested. Keywords: virtualization; knowledge; pedagogy; technology; spatiality; materiality
