    The Forum on Education Abroad will host a Critical Dialogue at Johns Hopkins University on November 12 (immediately prior to the NAFSA Region VIII Conference), focusing on the topic of "Decolonizing Education Abroad." Critical Dialogues bring together a group of participants for informal yet facilitated discussion on critical issues in the field. Spontaneous and authentic discourse is the goal. The registration fee is minimal ($45) and all perspectives are welcome!

    We are excited to announce the 2019 Somewhere Over the Rainbow (SOTR): Conference on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in International Education, to take place Saturday, June 1, 2019, at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). While our conferences are entirely separate, SOTR is immediately following the NAFSA: Association of International Educators conference taking place in Washington, DC. As UMD is in the Capital Beltway and metro accessible, this gives those who may be traveling an opportunity to attend two conferences in one trip, if desired. The 2019 conference theme is:  LGBTQ+ Borderlands: Migration, Race, and Refuge We look forward to continuing and enhancing the tradition of unusual and fascinating programming, building on the successes of our 2015 conference , our 2016 webinar series , and our 2017 conference . We have now opened our request for proposals for the conference, and we are looking for sessions that address the theme of LGBTQ+ Borderlands: Migration, Race, and Refuge within three key streams: Theory and Research; Current Events and Social Movements; and Practice, Skills, and Storytelling. Please submit proposals by March 7, 2019. We have also opened registration for the conference. Register now for an amazing experience. Early bird rates are good through March 22, 2019. There are also sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities available we'd be happy to discuss with you. VISIT THE REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS NOW!
