[Extended] Call for papers: 2017 KAME International Conference
The 2017 KAME International Conference
Call for Conference Papers/Abstracts:
The 2017 international conference will be hosted by the Korean Association for Multicultural Education (KAME) on May 17-19, 2017 at Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea.
Theme: “Creating Global Citizens in a Multicultural Society”
The conference will provide a platform for researchers, policy makers and practitioners in the field of multicultural education from home and abroad to share ideas and research findings, and build up a worldwide network of scholarly discussions and friendship.
The KAME invites submissions of manuscripts (or 500-word abstracts which are detailed enough for the conference organizer to judge the merits of the paper). Any presentation pertaining to the conference theme or related topics exploring research agendas and policy issues in the field of multicultural education are welcome. Please submit the manuscript/abstract and a short CV to the KAME office (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 31, 2017.
The KAME will inform the authors of whether the submitted paper is accepted by February 15, 2017.
Call for Travel Awards:
Each year, the KAME offers eight travel awards to the authors whose papers are submitted to the KAME conference. To be considered for the travel award, a full paper (approximately 6,000 – 8,000 words) and a brief CV should be submitted to the KAME office (email@example.com) by January 31, 2017.
The travel award includes a round-trip airline ticket (maximum of US$1,000 reimbursement for scholars from North and South Americas, Europe, Oceania, and Africa and the Middle East; maximum of US$600 reimbursement for scholars from Asia) plus a hotel room for three nights during the any KAME conference of the author’s choice. Recipients of the award have an obligation to submit any research paper(s) produced under this award to Multicultural Education Review within a year after the KAME conference. In addition, in the case that a recipient of the travel award is also a winner of the KAME’s writing competition award, the recipient will have to choose only one of the awards when it comes to prize money.
Multicultural Education Review (MER) is a peer-reviewed journal for research about diversity and equity in education. As an official scholarly journal of the KAME, MER welcomes original contributions exploring various aspects of multicultural education. MER is published four times per year through Routledge and is currently included in major indexes such as SCOUPUS.
