New Voices in Global Education & Learning 2024.

ANGEL is excited to host a virtual conference tailored for, and developed by, Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from the ANGEL ECR Sub-Network, and focusing on global education and learning. The conference will be an excellent opportunity to connect with other ECRs, get feedback on research and become inspired by the research of other ECRs – here defined as a current PhD student, or PhD awarded in the last 6 years.

This event is a community-led initiative which is supported by the EU co-funded Academic Network on Global Education & Learning*. 


The event will run on the 7 June, 09:00 - 13:00 UK time. It will feature 23 presentations split across a number of sessions, all Chaired by members of the ECR network. Check the Programme via the button below.

This event follows last year's successful ECR event, also titled 'New Voices', but this time around the whole event has been designed by the ECR Sub-Network facilitators. 

Please note that to present at the event, you will need to be a current ANGEL member. ECR membership is currently £25 per year. Find out more here.


General information 

Our primary aim is to create interesting and meaningful discussions around Global Education and Learning, as defined via the 'Dublin Declaration'. Presentations will be allocated a 15 or 30-minute slot (including presentation and discussion). Poster presentations are also possible. During the conference, there will also be time for networking, and peer support. We welcome submissions from ECRs who are currently in the process of developing their research ideas and wish to receive feedback.

Conference themes 

Based on a feedback survey we sent out to ECRs of the ANGEL network, we created 4 overarching themes for the conference. Submissions should relate to one of these themes. 

  • Rethinking Global Citizenship Education 
  • Global Education and Learning in practice 
  • Peace Education theory and practice 
  • The role of Global Learning in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world (VUCA)

  • that can provoke a thoughtful debate (opinion pieces are welcome) 
  • that challenge our often Eurocentric ways of thinking and highlight less researched contexts such as the Global South 
  • that foster critical thinking and reflection
