Call for Poster Proposals - New NAFSA Poster Fair

My colleague Bryan McAllister-Grande from the Office of Global Affairs at Brandeis University and the Research/Scholarship Network Leader for NAFSA: Association of International Educators sent the following message to a variety of international education listservs/discussion forums and I wanted to further promote this call for poster proposals on IHEC Blog as many readers may find this opportunity of interest. Following is Bryan’s post:


NAFSA 2010 Annual Conference
"The Changing Landscape of Global Higher Education"
May 30-June 4, Kansas City, MO

Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship (TLS) Knowledge Community, in partnership with the Peace and Justice Member Interest Group, will be hosting a new poster fair at this year's annual conference. We're looking for innovative approaches to among the following topics:

- social justice
- global citizenship and civil society
- peace, coexistence, and reconciliation
- gender, race, ethnicity, and religion
- public or citizen diplomacy
- major global issues such as poverty, health, environmental change, access to education, etc.
- sustainable development issues involving a peace/justice component
- research that looks at the impact of international education on communities, livelihoods, and international relations

These posters are aimed at both the research and practice level. So we're looking for "best practices" as much as exciting research and theory. (Ideally, poster submissions will highlight these theory-to-practice connections.)

The deadline for poster submission is 11:59pm, November 14th, 2009.

Please note that there will be no electrical hookups for posters, though wireless can be made available (price tba).

Please go to the NAFSA website for more information and to submit a poster proposal http://www.nafsa.org/annual_conference/call_for_proposals/

Make sure to indicate that you are applying for the "International Education to What End" poster fair.
