“Internationalization and Education: Breaking Boundaries” will ask the tough questions in a daylong discussion among scholars on the implications of globalization and education.

The forum is sponsored by the Manship School of Mass Communication’s Reilly Center for Media & Public Affairs and the College of Human Sciences & Education’s Curriculum Theory Project and French Education Project.

The symposium brings together scholars from universities around the world to examine the implications of the intersections of globalization and education. Specifically, it will discuss ideas related to human rights, difference, ethics and pedagogy in an increasingly globalized and international world.
