International Education to what End? Peace & Justice and Global Citizenship Revisited

If you are heading to the 2010 NAFSA: Association of International Educators annual conference from May 30th to June 4th in Kansas City, Missouri then you might want to consider submitting a proposal for a new poster session. Here are the details my colleague Bryan McAllister-Grande posted to the NAFSA Research/Scholarship network discussion forum:

The 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

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

If you have any questions, please contact Bryan McAllister-Grande (
