NAFSA Poster Sessions Focusing on International Education Research or the Links between Scholarship and Practice

I'm re-posting the following SECUSS-L post by my colleague Bryan McAllister-Grande about the upcoming proposal submission deadline for two NAFSA Vancouver poster sessions with his permission (there are other poster sessions as well which you should consider as well):

Following are two different poster sessions that involve international education research or the links between scholarship and practice. The poster fair proposal deadline is coming up next Wednesday, December 15 -- there is still plenty of time to get a brief idea together.

*International Education to What End? Peace & Justice and Global Citizenship Revisited*
In partnership with the Peace, Justice & Citizen Diplomacy special interest group, this poster fair showcases the connections and synergies between on- and off-campus international education and education for peace and justice. It introduces relevant concepts such as global citizenship and public/citizen diplomacy, and demonstrates ways in which international educators currently play a role in fostering peace and justice. The fair also presents resources and relevant research available for this work.   Poster Fair organizers are Samantha Martin ( and Bryan McAllister-Grande (

*International Education Research*
Posters feature the most recent innovative and in-depth qualitative and quantitative research in the field of international education. They highlight important findings, perspectives, and academic inquiries in order to stimulate collaboration and provide tangible professional resources and educational understanding. Organizer is Yuliya Kartoshkina (
