CIES Members Dr. Tavis Jules and and Dr. Florin Salajan are working on a new edited volume tentatively titled,Comparative and International Education (Re)Assembled: Post-Foundational Reconceptualizations of an Interdisciplinary Field.
Chapters are invited from scholars active in and/or with an interest in CIE broadly conceived on a range of themes intended to expand the (re)conceptualization of the field through the multifaceted lens of meta-assemblages. Authors from various (inter)disciplinary orientations, regions and academic/professional affiliations are welcome to contribute chapters related, but not limited to:
Advancing new theorizations using the meta-assemblage paradigm as an examination tool for redefining CIE beyond the conventional, traditional or foundational canons of the field;
Formulating theoretical and/or conceptual frameworks that engage scholars with assemblage as an examination tool for the comparative method in education;
Designing innovative research methods that align with, adapt, expand on and/or retool assemblage thinking for the purpose of conducting comparative education studies;
Proposing analytical frameworks rooted in assemblage thinking to interrogate educational policy formulation, development and implementation resulting from comparative studies;
Examining the role of intersecting institutionalization and professionalization pathways in the emergence of the CIE meta-assemblage;
Scrutinizing the territorialization and reterritorialization of CIE as a field;
Investigating the impact of the digital nexus of datafication for the reconfiguration of coterminous, synergistic and mutually reinforcing scholarly interests in CIE;
Studying the implications of the evolving and fluid nature of CIE as a meta-assemblage for explaining educational governance mechanisms.
Submissions should include a 300- to 500-word abstract and a brief CV with full contact information. They should be sent to volume co-editors Florin Salajan firstname.lastname@example.org Tavis Jules email@example.comOctober 19, 2020.Please feel free to ask the co-editors any questions for clarification or further details.
Abstracts will be reviewed by the co-editors and the editorial team at Bloomsbury Publishing.
