Call for Proposals: 2018 Northeastern CIES Regional Conference
This year the Northeastern Regional Conference will focus on "Rethinking the Purposes of Education and Lifelong Learning in the 21st Century."The goals of education continue to be re-imagined and contested by local, national and global actors, who believe in, or take issue with, the power of education to affect the well-being of people and the planet. How statements of the purposes of education influence policy priorities, system reforms and school realities is an issue that deserves further exploration and analysis. With these complex and oftentimes contradictory forces at play, the conference organizers invite participants to address different analytical and policy-oriented questions about the aims and purposes of education.
The organizers of the CIES 2018 Northeast Regional Conference invite proposals for: 1) individual paper proposals, 2) quick-fire talks and 3) poster sessions. Proposals should be based on original work that expands current knowledge in the field of comparative and international education or reconsiders existing educational policies and practices. Priority will be given to proposals that address conference themes. Individual proposals (not session proposals) are required in order to foster conversations among presenters from different institutions. As part of the registration process proposers can indicate relevant papers that have been submitted by other prospective participants.
All proposals must be submitted via the conference website, www.albany.edu/cies2018/
