Conference 2022
Call for Submissions

The fifth conference of the Critical Edge Alliance will take place at Paris 8 University (www.univ-paris8.fr) on January 26-28, 2022. This year’s conference theme is:

" Acting in Higher Education in Response to Climate Change "

Echoing the increasingly numerous mobilizations around the world, and in connection with what the COVID pandemic situation has revealed to us about the urgency of taking the ecological issues seriously, the conference will offer an opportunity to rethink the impact of climate change and its implications, in order to prepare for upcoming global challenges.

How sustainable are our campuses? How can the humanities, the social sciences, and the arts contribute to the fight against climate change? What can we do as students, staff and faculty members, together and individually? These are some of the questions that the conference is aiming to address from different angles: training, research, interactions with our surroundings and local communities,

innovative technologies, inclusion, international exchanges, and management. The conference is therefore an invitation to go beyond disciplinary and institutional silos.

Everyone interested in the theme of higher education and climate change are encouraged to participate.

Call for submissions

We also welcome submissions from people who are not connected to a Critical Edge

Alliance institution, but are interested in the theme as well as alternative and

experimental approaches to higher education. NB: Due to the health context, the conference will be held in hybrid format and will combine online and / or face-to-face events.

You can propose :

1. A paper

2. A thematic panel

3. A workshop

4. An artistic production or expression

We encourage panels and workshops that aim to bring together participants from as

many countries and institutions of higher education as possible. We may therefore ask

organizers to accept additional co-organizers and speakers. Please submit your proposals no later than November 8th, 2021 by filling the forms accessible via the following links:
