Presentations during the CIHE forum incorporate a comparative dimension in methods and theoretical frameworks, explore practices and structures that have international implications. Presentations in the pre-conference forum include comparative studies analyzing two or more higher education national systems; studies exploring the conditions and consequences of transnational faculty, staff, and student mobility as a result of changing global demographics and economic development needs; organizational (institutional or system) global strategy and engagement; empirical and critical explorations of cross-border higher education institutions and programs; and critical analyses of internationalization practices, including education abroad as well as internationalization at home and a distance.

2023 CIHE Pre-Conference Program Co-Chairs:

Call for Proposals (due April 25, 2023)

Proposals that include under-utilized theories, such as (Post-/De-) Colonial Theory, Southern Epistemologies, and Indigenous Scholarship, are particularly encouraged. We also seek proposals that engage with new methodological approaches that go beyond the national containers and that interrogate the normalization of Western perspectives.

Following the ASHE 2023 theme, of Higher Ed Research: Purposes, Politics, & Practices, we invite scholars to submit research that highlights the role of domestic educational policies and the geopolitical landscape in shaping “equitable access and affordability and the experiences and livelihoods of all staff, faculty, and students.” We also encourage scholars to share works that critically engage with “the politics of privilege and entitlement” and that “challenge the continued evolution of higher education to serve the public good” globally and in different national and regional contexts.

Please note that the CIHE Pre-Conference Forum is different from the General Conference section International Higher Education. Authors can submit to either the general conference or the CIHE Pre-Conference; however, the same proposal may not be submitted to both.
