Conferences

Call for Papers: CIES: Improving Education for a More Equitable World, 14-15 February 2022 online; 18-22 February 2023 onsite at the Grand Hyatt Washington, Washington, DC, USA. Deadline: 8 August 2022.

The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) 2023 theme is Improving Education for a More Equitable World. Educational improvement is not merely a technical term, evidenced by the emerging, fast-growing, and interdisciplinary field of educational improvement studies. It constitutes a powerful approach and a dynamic process to advance education, through which reality and uncertainty are examined and problems are tackled. It varies across educational levels, forms, and contexts, including but not limited to equity, inclusion, diversity, quality, effectiveness, and sustainability. Each deserves stronger policy actions and more integrated theories and applications, requiring capacity- and community-building, a systemic approach, and multi-perspective inquiries.

Comparative and international perspectives are essential to fulfilling the dream of educational equity. How should we critically look at and meet desired outcomes across time and space? In what ways may micro, meso, and/or macro educational strategies, structures, and processes be improved along with their environments? How do we know through rigorous methods that we ARE making progress responsively? What changes can bring about responsible and sustainable advancement in learning, teaching, and schooling? What implications may these changes have on individual systems, contexts, and the already vulnerable planet? And how may our endeavors help redefine comparative and international education in a way that reconnects it with contextualized educational policy and practice?

CFP CIES 2022: Illuminating the Power of Idealism (USA Hybrid)

Conferences

Call for Papers: CIES: Illuminating the Power of Idea/lism, Minneapolis, MN, USA with a hybrid design, April 18-22, 2022. Deadline: October 27, 2021.

The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) 2022 theme Illuminating the Power of Idea/lism arises from the intersection of two immutable realities of our time and the impact both are having on the field of comparative and international education. The first is the global experience with the COVID-19 pandemic. The second is the rise of nativism and fundamentalism representing both ideological rigidity and political divisiveness. The CIES 2022 theme seeks to find ways to address these challenges by bringing forward new ideas with a sense of idealism in the work we all do as educationists.

In planning for CIES 2022, the hope is to gather in person after a three-year gap, with a theme grounded in the context of time, place, and possibility. The context of time refers to the global pandemic that has upended the practice of education for learners in all environments. The context of place refers to Minneapolis, a city at the crossroads of global and local, a place of refuge for new arrivals to the U.S., but also at the forefront of racial justice protests since the 2020 murder of George Floyd. The context of possibility returns to the notion of ideas where at this time and in this place, organizers seek to foster dialogue, while anticipating gathering as practitioners, academics, and students – indeed, a global community of idealists.
