2017 CIES Symposium — Interrogating and Innovating CIE Research

The second CIES Symposium will be held from October 26-27, 2017, at the Arlington campus of George Mason University. Hosted by members of the Gender and Education Committee, the South Asia SIG and faculty at GMU, the theme for the 2017 symposium is, “Interrogating and innovating CIE research”.

Anchoring this symposium is the notion that how comparative and international education phenomena are studied, the questions we ask, the tools we use and the epistemological, ontological, and ideological orientations they reflect, shape the nature of the knowledge produced, the value placed on that knowledge, and of critical importance, its pedagogy and implications for practice in diverse societies globally. Moreover, that from both within and beyond the field of Comparative and International Education (CIE), scholars and practitioners have raised concerns about the colonial and neo-colonial practices and dynamics that have been reproduced and/or have characterized (in part) the history of CIE.

Through distinguished plenary speakers, breakout sessions, concurrent paper sessions and workshops, we will provide spaces and resources for students, junior and senior scholars, practitioners and policymakers to not only interrogate and challenge existing practice, but to learn and develop new ways of thinking about and doing CIE research.
