The CIHE pre-conference within the ASHE 2024 General Conference seeks proposals that resonate with the overarching theme, "I Am A Scholar." We invite submissions that not only delve into international higher education but also contribute to our collective understanding of scholarly identity, including scholar-practitioners perspectives and approaches. The intent is to explore the diverse facets of being a scholar on an international stage and fostering inclusivity within our scholarly community.

Proposals for this CIHE forum incorporate a comparative dimension in their methods or theoretical frameworks, or explore practices and structures that have international implications. Proposals for the pre-conference forum may 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.

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 2024 theme, we invite scholars to submit research reflecting on what it means to be a scholar in different global contexts. This includes considering the unique challenges posed by the current volatile political and social climate. Scholars are encouraged to address, among others, the threats to freedom of speech and the suppression of diverse voices, the impact of forced migration on academic communities, and the complex dynamics that arise in international and comparative higher education settings under such circumstances.

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.
