A mosaic of cultures

The 2017 Conference Conversation Starter features seven thought-provoking essays that illuminate the past and present challenges that shape the future of international education. Authors and experts in the field of higher education, including Philip Altbach, Norbert Sabic and Marijk van der Wende, thoughtfully weave the theme of the 2017 EAIE Conference, ‘a mosaic of cultures’, into their essays. Topics such as an inclusive European identity, nationalism and anti-globalisation sentiments are the focus of this slim volume that is meant to stimulate thought, discussion and debate at the 29th Annual EAIE Conference and Exhibition in Seville. Readers are invited to wander through the pages and contemplate how these broader topics cause us to think deeply about the work we do to intentionally and creatively develop the internationalisation of higher education.
