Call for contributions: next generation insights into internationalization of higher education

Are you a young scholar on higher education and are working on themes related to internationalization?

Douglas Proctor (Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education) and Laura Rumbley (Boston College Center for International Higher Education) have launched a call for chapter proposals for an edited collection focusing on next generation perspectives on the internationalization of higher education. The title for the volume Future Agenda for Internationalization in Higher Education: Next Generation Insights into Research, Policy, and Practice. The book will be part of Routledge’s “Internationalization in Higher Education” series.


The book has an aim to focus on new contexts for internationalization in higher education, new topics of enquiry, and new or innovative modes or methodologies of research, outlined on the webpage as following:

  • New contexts – contexts or environments for internationalization which have not previously been explored in detail
  • New modes – new or alternative methodologies or frames of reference for exploring, understanding and/or researching internationalization
  • New topics – aspects of internationalization and/or international activities which have not previously been explored or have limited exposure in the current discourse.

As the title suggests, the book will also give primacy to next generation perspectives from emerging researchers and analysts. The call for proposals and key timelines are now available online at This website also contains background information about the rationales for the book and its structure, as well as bios for the editors.

Proposals are due 30 September 2016. Check the website for the remaining of the timeline.
