In new window Print all NYU International Education Grad Student Conference, 2012 – CALL FOR PROPOSALS


*** Submission Deadline: Monday, January 16, 2012***

The International Education program at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development is pleased to host its Seventh Annual International Education conference. We invite abstracts for presentations at the conference, to be held at New York University’s Washington Square campus, March 29 and 30, 2012.

This year’s conference, “Advancing Global Education in Austere Times” seeks to bring together academics and practitioners from a variety of disciplines to discuss the impact of a global climate of austerity on the provision of education. Improving quality and extending access remain aspirations at all levels of education globally, but cuts to public spending and international development assistance will undoubtedly affect these objectives. Specifically, we seek to explore:

How does austerity affect the development, implementation and evaluation of education in different contexts? Who are the main actors in these processes and what are their roles?

How does the impact of austerity vary globally? Does austerity hinder the provision of education or can it be beneficial?

Are there constructive responses to austerity measures for academics and practitioners to undertake? Where and to whom can we look for these ideas?

Proposals not directly related to these themes are also welcome.

The interdisciplinary field of international education provides a unique opportunity to address these topics from a variety of academic and practical perspectives. Participants from any discipline are encouraged to apply. By bringing together scholars, researchers, and practitioners, we hope to come to new understandings of the nature of our work in the field and in the classroom. Both doctoral and masters’ students are encouraged to submit proposals, as this is a graduate student conference.


We seek individual and/or group proposals for paper presentations. We will primarily use panel format for our sessions, although proposals for other kinds of presentations may be submitted. Individual papers will be grouped in topical panels, arranged after proposals have been accepted and confirmed. LCD projectors and Power-point equipped PC laptops will be available for all sessions.

Individual Paper Proposals:

* Title of paper

* Presenter’s name, institutional affiliation, and title

* Mailing address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers

* An abstract of 150-200 words

* Three keyword descriptors

Group Paper Proposals:

* Title of the panel session

* All names, institutional affiliations and titles

* All mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, telephones and fax numbers

* An abstract of 150-200 words for the panel

* An abstract of 150-200 words for each individual paper

* Keyword descriptors for panel

Please e-mail your submissions to nyu.inted@gmail.com by Monday, January 16, 2012.


The 2012 Conference will be hosted at New York University’s Washington Square campus, primarily in buildings associated with the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development. Information about travel to and from New York, accommodation options, fees, and procedures will be provided in a few weeks.
