CERA-UK (Chinese Education Research Association in the UK) Annual Conference 2018, Chinese Education in Global Contexts: Researching the Local, the Global and the ‘Glocal’


The conference theme aims to create a critical space for consideration of focused local studies alongside presentations that cast a broader eye upon global impacts and initiatives. Often, education research that is focused upon seemingly small-scale, localised settings produces findings that have wider implications and relevance. Conversely, research into broad global themes often produces findings of relevance to a variety of local settings. One of the conceptual threads connecting these two seeming opposites is that of culture. At the global dimension, many studies now explore intercultural transformations, while there is also a renewed interest in the particular aspects of localised cultures. This has led to the term Glocal being coined.
