July Deadlines

  • Call for Papers: 2014 Midwest Regional Conference of the Comparative International Education Society
    July 31 Deadline
    Workshop Dates: October 10-11, 2014, Indiana University, Bloomington

    In an increasingly interconnected word, internationalization is a phenomenon affecting every level of learning. At all levels of education, internationalization encourages the incorporation of global perspectives and dimensions. Its wide-ranging impacts are evidenced in fundamental shifts in curriculum, instruction, policy, and administration aimed at educating learners as global citizens.

    While internationalization efforts appear to offer many benefits, these efforts and the way in which they are studied need to be critically examined: Do these efforts perpetuate or break down structural, global inequalities? Who benefits? Who is excluded? What assumptions underlie the concept of internationalization? What does it mean to different educational stakeholders? What technologies enhance internationalization opportunities? How does internationalization relate to ideas of global citizenship? What methods and methodological approaches may better help us study these questions? How can internationalization be reimagined within a framework of social justice?

    This theme will guide conference participants, including researchers, graduate students, representatives of global institutions, civil society, and education practitioners, to reimagine the internationalization of education and inspire new conversations about inequality, development, policy, and methods as they relate to internationalization.

    Additional information is available on their website.
