CIHE Pre-Con Forum

Monday, October 25, 2021

This event will be held virtually. See for more information.


Proposals for this CIHE 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 in 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 and internationalization at home.
Proposals that include under-utilized theories, such as Postcolonial Theory, Southern Epistemologies, Indigenous Scholarship, are particularly encouraged. As well, we seek for proposals that engage with new methodological approaches that go beyond the national containers and that interrogate the normalization of Western perspectives.
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.
