The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) is the oldest and largest body of its kind, and is a leader among the 44 members of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES). This book celebrates the CIES' 60th anniversary. The Society grew out of a series of conferences in the mid-1950s. Those conferences were attended by a small group of scholars in the USA who were keen to elucidate and expand their field. Now the Society has over 2,500 individual and about 900 institutional members (mainly libraries) around the world. The book explains how the Society was constructed and internationalized. It analyzes its development trajectory, its major structural components, and the programs and curricula that it has inspired and nourished. The significance of the book is not restricted to the CIES. It will certainly interest counterparts in other WCCES constituent societies and scholars from all fields who are concerned with institutional structures and their evolution.

Featuring a foreword penned by Ambassador (Ret) and Professor Emeritus Horace G. Dawson, this volume articulates the significance of comparative and international education and affairs as experienced by elected Fellows of the Comparative and International Education Society—including some as Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the International Academy of Education. Based upon their decades of multiple research modalities and senior administrative engagements with universities, USAID, National Science Foundation, World Bank, Fulbright, and other agencies, the Fellows explicate critical historical phenomena and postulate how future directions of the field may evolve. The volume expounds the salience of cross cutting and interdisciplinary themes by analyzing how the social sciences, humanities, and international affairs have affected the evolving nature of the field. Pedagogical epistemologies, public and educational policies, and paradigms emerge from applied research as new motifs are presented in view of geopolitical and global affairs that will affect education in coming decades.

Revisiting Insider Outsider Research in Comparative and International Education

This volume recognises how many researchers across the social sciences, and in comparative and international education in particular, see themselves as insiders or outsiders or, more pertinently, shifting combinations of both, in the research process. The book revisits and problematises these concepts in an era where the global mobility of researchers and ideas has increased dramatically, and when advances in comparative, qualitative research methodologies seek to be more inclusive, collaborative, participatory, reflexive and nuanced. Collectively, the chapters argue that, in the context of such change, it has become more difficult to categorise and label groups and individuals as being ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ systems, professional communities, or research environments. In doing so, it is recognised that individual and group identities can be multiple, flexible and changing such that the boundary between the inside and the outside is permeable, less stable and less easy to draw. The book draws upon an exciting collection of original research carried out in a diversity of educational systems from British, European, Latin American, Indian Ocean, South Asian, African and Chinese contexts and cultures. This develops a deep and innovative reconsideration of key issues that must be faced by all researchers involved in the planning and conduct of in-depth field research. This is a challenging and stimulating methodological contribution, designed to advance critical and reflective thinking while providing practical and accessible guidance, insights and support for new and experienced researchers within and beyond the field of comparative and international education.
