Call For Papers

The World Universities Forum and its companion journal and book series seek to explore the meaning and purpose of the academy in times of striking social transformation. These discussion forums bring together university administrators, teachers and researchers to discuss the prospects of the academy and to exemplify or imagine ways in which the university can take a leading and constructive role in the transformations of our times.

Today, universities face significant challenges to their traditional position in society. Contemporary knowledge systems are becoming more distributed and learning ubiquitous. Where does this leave the university, as an historically specialized and privileged place for certain kinds of knowledge and learning, as an institutionally bounded space? What do these changes mean for the mission and structures of the renewed university? What are emerging as principal areas of the academic interest?

As in previous years, the 2015 World Universities Forum (WUF) will feature sessions on a breadth of topics relevant to the university and its possibilities. Topics are intentionally broad to encourage diverse discussions, ideas, and backgrounds.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types) related to the University through one of the following themes:
* Teaching and Learning
* Research and Knowledge Formation
* University Administration
* The University and the Community

Proposed abstracts are reviewed in monthly rounds. For deadlines, updates on the conference, themes, and more, please visit our website:

If you are unable to attend the conference, you may still join the community and submit your article for peer review and possible publication, upload an online presentation, and enjoy subscriber access to the journal.
