Final deadline for submissions - Feb 16, 2018

The Annual Graduate Student Research Conference of the Washington Consortium for Comparative and International Education

Location - American University, Spring Valley Campus (accessible by shuttle from Metro)

Join us for the Annual Graduate Student Research Conference organized by the Washington Consortium for Comparative and International Education, hosted this year by American University at its Spring Valley Building (SVB). The conference will take place on Saturday, February 24, 2018 from 9AM – 1:30PM. This conference is an opportunity for graduate students at the consortium schools to present their work and to engage in meaningful discussion about the forces that shape international education.

Call for Proposals

The deadline for submitting proposals is February 16th and must include a title and an abstract of no more than 200 words describing your presentation (see example from last year). Proposals can be based on a class paper, thesis, dissertation, project or other scholarly work. The 2018 SRC theme is inspired by the related 2018 Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) theme, and seeks proposals that explore the range of methodologies, geographies and substantive areas that encompass the broad field of comparative and international education. We especially call for authors to consider questions of impact and implications as part of their proposals. Comparative and international education as a field has reflected divisions between what have been characterized as developed and developing nations, and by notions about where and by whom knowledge is generated and exchanged. The knowledge exchange has often been a monologue in which the “experts” of the North speak to and study the South. Yet, as global forces increasingly connect local actors across divisions and borders, opportunities arise to remap intellectual boundaries and reshape the flow of global knowledge production and exchange in education. The SRC conference is interested in considering a wide range of student papers, which fall within but also extend beyond this broad theme. Therefore, please consider submitting work that touches on a wide range of issues related to all levels of education, from primary and secondary education to higher education and life-long learning, and covers all aspects of education, including global education, education for development, study abroad and exchange, peace and conflict resolution education, and emergency education, among other areas.
