Comparative International Education Society Indigenous SIG Webinar to learn how to submit a proposal Oct 7th at 11 a.m. PST

Posted on Updated on

Greetings SAGE members,

The Comparative International Education Society will be in Vancouver in March, 2016.  They have a relatively new Indigenous SIG, whose members want to ensure that they are connecting with local Indigenous scholars. There are opportunities to organize a panel on a topic of interest to you that relates to Indigenous knowledges in the academy or submit an individual paper or poster.

There will be a webinar on Oct 7th with the Indigenous SIG founder (Dr. Ladi Semali) and many other SIG members. This webinar will also open the conversation for those of you who would like to learn more about how to make connections based on shared histories, common issues in Indigenous education today. Participants will also be invited to share their work and bring forward any questions or concerns about the upcoming proposal deadline on Oct. 15th, 2015. Please see attached call for proposals and webinar poster for more information.

This is a great opportunity to be involved with an international conference without having to incur the significant costs of travel- and meet some neat people who share similar interests and passions.

Also, if you are interested in sharing anything about our local context here in B.C. and Canada, please let me know. I welcome your participation and sharing. Many minds/hearts are better than one!
