Call for Proposals: International Conference on History Education and Multiculturality

The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent challenges and changes experienced, have led to discussions over key social and educational concepts, such as, racism, equity, nationality, empathy, diversity, and technology. These concepts form a basis for discourse on their role in intercultural education. In light of this, the International Association for Intercultural Education (IAIE) is organising a conference in which a variety of topics relevant to the current global situation, as well as other intercultural topics will be discussed. The conference will take place on June 27-30, 2021.

The conference will include a number of strands, such as peace education, cooperative and collaborative learning in multicultural settings, language awareness, history education and multiculturality among others. You may find the full list here.
