OCIES 2018: Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand

46th Annual OCIES Conference

Will be held at

Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand.

20-22 November, 2018


The theme of the 46th Annual OCIES Conference is Exploring, Celebrating and Deepening Oceanic Relationalities. This theme offers OCIES members and others as comparative and international educators to reflect on the gains, challenges and possibilities of our changing times. As a society of Oceanic education scholars, we are aware of our moral imperative to explore these challenges in a manner which reflects our shared commitment to people-enablement, post-coloniality, deimperialization, the recognition of Indigenous rights, social justice and various forms of sustainability. Given the visionary platform of OCIES relationalities, this year’s conference encourages and welcomes the participation of all who are interested in people-relationalities within diverse philosophical perspectives, intellectual traditions and contexts. Together with OCIES members, those of our sister and international comparative and international education societies are invited to this conference.


A detailed conference call will be made further; outlining the thematic questions, contexts of papers and proposals, key dates and submission guidelines. For now, pencil in the conference dates, plan your travels and we look forward to hosting you at Victoria University of Wellington and in Aotearoa New Zealand.
