CfA: ERUA Summit 2023: Why Universities? Reimagining Higher Education and Research

Deadline for submission of abstracts (max 250 words): May 15, uploaded here
Conference Dates: 11-12 October
Place: Roskilde University, Denmark

The European Reform University Alliance (ERUA) was founded on a shared vision of universities as creative and experimental spaces and the critical function of the modern university in shaping more just, open, and inclusive societies. The conference investigates the role of alternative and experimental forms of higher education and research in a time of challenges: expanded student populations, technological disruption, the emergence of a global market of higher education, and the growth of social inequality and anti-scientific sentiment.

The conference will address this question by focusing on three themes, 1) universities and internationalization, 2) challenges to teaching, and 3) responsible research. Read more here.

We are inviting papers and panels that explore these themes as well as innovative examples of teaching and research practices. We welcome submissions in diverse formats and across disciplines that might encourage interactive formats which facilitate audience engagement. We welcome proposals from researchers, educators, students and practitioners  

If you are interested in chairing a panel or participating in the selection of papers, please contact the chair of the relevant stream.
