Call for Chapter Proposals: “Future Agenda for Internationalization in Higher Education: Next Generation Insights into Research, Policy, and Practice”

Editors Douglas Proctor (Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education) and Laura Rumbley (Boston College Center for International Higher Education) are pleased to launch a call for chapter proposals for an edited collection focusing on next generation perspectives on the internationalization of higher education. The title for the volume Future Agenda for Internationalization in Higher Education: Next Generation Insightsinto Research, Policy, and Practice.

As part of Routledge's "Internationalization in Higher Education" series, this book will focus on new contexts for internationalization in higher education, new topics of enquiry, and new or innovative modes or methodologies of research. As the title suggests, the book will also give primacy to next generation perspectives from emerging researchers and analysts.

The call for proposals and key timelines are now available online at This website also contains background information about the rationales for the book and its structure, as well as bios for the editors. 
What I really like about the approach Douglas and Laura are taking with this book is the focus on "next generation" perspectives.  For the purposes of this book, the editors define next generation authors as:

  • early career individuals with fewer than 10 years of post-PhD or professional experience
  • advanced doctoral students with particularly strong potential as thoughtful and innovative scholars, or
  • individuals who may be more established in their careers but who have a particularly “forward thinking” perspective to share on the future of internationalization. 

If you are interested in submitting a chapter proposal I strongly recommend that you visit the website at
