Friends Association for Higher Education

Call for Papers: 2016 FAHE conference

The Friends Association for Higher Education is pleased to announce it is accepting proposals for sessions, papers and workshops at its 2016 conference at Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham, U.K., June 16-19.

Our theme for 2016 is “Educating for Action.”

We invite you to join with other Friends educators from colleges, universities and study centers globally for an invigorating time together in England, on the beautiful grounds of our member institution Woodbrooke.

Whatever field we are in as Quaker educators, our practice is informed by a faith that calls us to be transformed and in turn to help transform the world. We are nurturing our students to help make the world a better place; we are educating for action. 

We invite proposals for presentations, workshops, and panel discussions that address any concern related to Friends and higher education, but proposals speaking to the theme “Educating for Action” will especially be welcome. We also invite a disciplinary focus this year on “Technologies of Change: Quakers, business and industry,” in preparation for the fourth volume in FAHE’s book series “Quakers and the disciplines.”

As you prepare for the conference, we hope the following queries will be helpful:
