I look forward to giving an online presentation on January 29 for the British Association for International and Comparative Education. My role for our symposium is as a Discussant, responding to philosophical papers presented by a group of excellent PhD students from five different countries—Adam Switala (Poland), Thu Thu (Myanmar), Czarecah Tuppil Oropilla (Philippines), Luna Luo (China), and Dorothy Ferary (Indonesia)—who are among those that participated in my 2020 course PhD911: Non-Western Educational Philosophy and Policy.
It is exciting to see what these bright young thinkers are accomplishing, and a thrill to be part of it. They are from the same group of scholars who are collaborating with me in development of a special issue on Asian Philosophies for the Nordic Journal of Comparative and International Education.
This BAICE event is hosted by Dorothy Ferary, to whom we are grateful for the invitation. We are eager to present our ideas, obtain feedback, and publish our work within a few months. A link to the event, with further details, will be posted here when it is made available.
I am hoping we will also manage to attract a few more qualified students to the upcoming Bergen Summer Research School, which includes a new PhD course Internationalising Higher Education.
