Dublin, Ireland Selected as Location for 2018 International Colloquium on Black Males in Education 

Wisconsin’s Equity and Inclusion Laboratory (Wei LAB) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Todd Anthony Bell National Resource Center on the African American Male at The Ohio State University are excited to announce the 7th Annual International Colloquium on Black Males in Education (ICBME) will be held in Dublin, Ireland October 24-26, 2018. It will be preceded by the Pre-Colloquium on October 22-23, 2018.

The Colloquium serves as a space to exchange ideas and perspectives concerning the global dynamics of Black males in the educational pipeline. It is a community-building experience that brings together world-class scholars, high-impact practitioners, policy makers, funders, students, and concerned citizens. The Colloquium offers a diverse array of programs that serve to elicit intellectual thought, discussion, and ideas that can be implemented to serve and improve the experiences of Black males throughout the world. Colloquium participants are encouraged to discuss the wide range of educational issues that arise across the educational pipeline (i.e., university and PK-12) as well as share ideas and innovative practices in different disciplinary fields (e.g., history, sociology, and STEM) that take into consideration how forces such as globalization and the internationalization of education affect the educational trajectories of Black males.

Hotel, registration, travel, and proposal information can be found on the ICBME website: globalcolloquium.org.
