62nd CIES Annual Conference

Sun, 25 Mar 2018 – Thu, 29 Mar 2018

The CIES Annual Conference is an academic conference attended by researchers, students, practitioners and policy makers interested in comparative and international education. Each CIES conference has a theme that is intended to serve as a broad umbrella under which a wide range of work can be presented, while still yielding the consolidation and advancement of knowledge. As Academic Chair of the 2018 CIES conference, President-Elect Professor Regina Cortina (Teachers College, Columbia University), has set the 2018 conference theme as “Re-Mapping Global

The theme of CIES 2018, “Re-mapping Global Education,” aims to shift the traditional starting point of research to a greater extent toward the global South. This shift not only enables South-North dialogue, but also enhances North-South dialogue and the expansion of South- South collaboration. The new map requires us as scholars and practitioners to expand our awareness of the voices, actors and knowledge producers that have historically been marginalized in educational research and institutions. Taking advantage of the widening epistemological parameters of our field, we will focus the conversation on theories and methodologies produced in the global South, with a view toward exploring new voices around the globe. This perspective impels us to forge commitments with greater dedication than ever across all kinds of borders and to re-envision possibilities for cooperation and mutual support in advancing education research and practice.

CIES invites proposals for papers, panel sessions, roundtables, and poster sessions that build on the expansion of the parameters of knowledge production and educational practice along these lines within the field of comparative and international education.

CIES 2018 will also feature a set of highlighted sessions around sub-themes related to the conference’s main theme. Submitters are invited, but not required, to address one or more of the following issues:

·         Southern Theories and Methodologies

·         South-South Collaboration, Theories and Practice

·         Rethinking North-South Dichotomies

·         Indigenous Epistemologies

·         Education Initiatives for and by Aboriginals, Indigenous Peoples and First Nations

·         Poststructural Theories, Research and Practice

·         Global Inequalities in Knowledge Production and Exchange
