About CIES 2018

The theme of CIES 2018, “Re-mapping Global Education,” aims to shift the traditional starting point of research to a greater extent toward the global South. This shift not only enables South-North dialogue, but also enhances North-South dialogue and the expansion of South- South collaboration. The new map requires us as scholars and practitioners to expand our awareness of the voices, actors and knowledge producers that have historically been marginalized in educational research and institutions. Taking advantage of the widening epistemological parameters of our field, we will focus the conversation on theories and methodologies produced in the global South, with a view toward exploring new voices around the globe. This perspective impels us to forge commitments with greater dedication than ever across all kinds of borders and to re-envision possibilities for cooperation and mutual support in advancing education research and practice.
