Decentering Mobility in Intercultural Education: Engagement, Equity, and Access, Intercultural Competence Conference, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ and Online hybrid, January 27-30, 2022.
Featuring experts in intercultural competence from across the U.S. and internationally, the Intercultural Competence Conference (ICC) is for K-16 educators and students in fields related to Foreign Languages, Social Sciences/Studies and the Humanities, and for others involved in government, NGOs, and the private sector who are interested in seeing and interpreting relationships between cultures. This biennial event brings together researchers and practitioners across languages, levels, and settings to discuss and share research, theory, and best practices, and to foster meaningful professional dialog on issues related to the development and assessment of Intercultural Competence, especially in a foreign or second language. Hosted by the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL) at the University of Arizona, the 2022 ICC conference will focus on the ways in which intercultural communication and the teaching and learning thereof have been shaped through mobility – both virtual and physical.
NOTE: the Call for papers has already closed, but the event is still open to participants.
Grant Douglas is co-director, ICIE (IÉSEG Center for Intercultural Engagement), Lille, France.
Grant has been involved in international education and training in different capacities since 1991. Originally from Newcastle- Upon-Tyne in the North-East of England, Grant is a long-term expatriate who has lived and worked in France for over 30 years. He was in charge of the International Relations Service of different higher education institutes for 17 years.

In recent years Grant’s focus has moved more from a purely international/intercultural perspective to a more broadly diversity and inclusion perspective which is reflected in his participation in projects aimed at fostering more diversity and inclusion in higher education institutes and in making them zero tolerant of physical and verbal harassment. He is currently involved in an international research project examining the International Student Experience (ISE) as well as two internal IÉSEG projects designed to increase student engagement and inclusion and eradicate verbal and physical harassment. When he is not at work, Grant likes to spend time cultivating his vegetable patch, listening to music, and following his local soccer team, LOSC.
