Reimagining Internationalization: Critical Dialogues on Global Dimensions of Education--Guest Editors' Introduction
Kubow, Patricia K.; Wild, Justin; Joslin, A'ame
FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education, v2 n2 Article 1 p1-4 2015
The theme of this special issue of "FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education" is "Reimagining Internationalization: Critical Dialogues on Global Dimensions of Education" based on the 2014 Midwestern Regional Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society (MCIES). The Comparative International Education Society (CIES) is an association of scholars within and outside of academia "dedicated to increasing the understanding of educational issues, trends and policies through comparative, cross-cultural and international perspectives" (CIES, 2015). In addition to its annual meeting, CIES supports regional conferences, which allow for scholarly engagement among colleagues in an intimate setting. The 2014 MCIES was held at Indiana University (IU), organized by graduate students in the School of Education, and supervised by Margaret Sutton. The Center for International Education, Development and Research (CIEDR) in the IU School of Education, directed by Patricia K. Kubow, served as a conference sponsor. In consultation with Justin Wild and A'ame Joslin, two graduate students who co-led the conference committee's outreach efforts, Kubow suggested curating a collection of research presented at the conference for a journal special issue, which "FIRE" generously agreed to support. This article introduces, and describes the contents of that special issue. The hope is that the pieces within will help readers to reexamine critically the dialogues on education, globalization, and culture in their efforts to reimagine the possibilities of internationalization in postsecondary and K-12 settings around the world.
