Call For Papers

The ‘post truth’ world challenges dominant conceptions of citizenship. It has transformed political culture via emotionally-charged rhetoric that is disconnected from the realities of contemporary citizenship and governance. Factual and expert interventions into public debate are often marginalised in favour of the repetition of unsubstantiated or fabricated assertions, allowing previously ‘extreme’ beliefs and positions to enter the political mainstream. The ‘post-truth’ world has disrupted and discounted understandings of responsible civic participation and reasoned debate; appearance becomes more important than reality and the construction of division persistently erodes solidarity.


Despite these reservations, is it possible that the ‘post-truth’ world has re-engaged citizens with politics and public life in ways that could not have been anticipated? Or, are citizens being deceived by populists and new media? Wherever one stands, informal citizenship learning is being transformed with major implications for formal citizenship education.

The 2018 International CiCea is our 20th conference and 2nd with CitizED. The conference theme is ‘Citizenship & Identity in a ‘post-truth’ world’ and will focus on the discourse, research and praxis related to this theme. With these and other challenges in mind, we invite innovative interpretations from any academic discipline with respect to practice and/or research concerned with citizenship, identities and the conference theme to submit a presentation proposal. We welcome papers, posters, symposiums and workshops presented in person or virtually.

If you wish to be considered for 2018 Conference, please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words via the CiCea/CitizED proposal link [see below] on or before Friday 22nd December 2017. This conference accepts papers in English only.
