CIES 2020 Miami
Education Beyond the Human: Toward Sympoiesis
Miami, Florida, March 22 - 26, 2020
We live in a moment of epochal precarity, amidst irreversible environmental catastrophe that is impacting all life on Earth. Signaling the end of human exceptionalism, this era calls for an urgent redefinition of what it is to be human and a reconfiguration of the relationship between human and Earth. How should education respond to a world of shifting planetary boundaries, collapsing ecosystems, and emerging visions? What education policies, practices, and pedagogies can help re-situate the human within the relational flow of life where everyone and everything – both human and non-human – are deeply interconnected? How can we learn to responsibly encounter and fully engage with a more than human world?
CIES 2020 Miami will accept proposals for contributions in several session formats. Proposals in certain formats will undergo double-blind peer review via the All Academic online submission system, while those in other formats will need to be submitted by email for review by the CIES 2020 Program Committee. The CIES 2020 All Academic online submission system will open in mid-August 2019 and close on October 1, 2019 via the official conference website, cies2020.org.
Note on Submission Limit
In order to promote wide participation, prospective presenters may submit only one proposal through the All Academic system for either an individual presentation (formal paper, round-table paper, or poster) or for group presentation (formal panel or round-table session)
. After you have submitted your proposal, the online submission system will automatically disable the option to submit additional papers, panels, or posters. However, submissions in other formats
do not count towards the submission limit. Participants may also be listed more than once in the conference program as a co-author (non-presenter), chair, or discussant. If you have questions about submission via the online system, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
