Join us in Honolulu for IICAH2022
January 06-10, 2022 | The Hawai'i Convention Center, Honolulu, Hawaii, United States
Aloha and welcome to the beautiful island of Oahu, home to The IAFOR International Conference on Arts & Humanities in Hawaii (IICAH) and The IAFOR International Conference on Education in Hawaii (IICE).
Held in partnership with the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, this international conference encourages academics and scholars to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum stimulating respectful dialogue, by bringing together university scholars working throughout Hawai'i, the United States, Asia, and beyond to share ideas and research. This event will afford an exceptional opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, networking, and facilitating partnerships across national and disciplinary borders.
Since its founding in 2009, IAFOR has brought people and ideas together in a variety of events and platforms to promote and celebrate interdisciplinary study, and underline its importance. Over the past year we have engaged in many cross-sectoral projects, including those with universities (the University of Barcelona, Hofstra University, UCL, University of Belgrade and Moscow State University), think tanks (the East-West Center), as well as collaborative projects with the United Nations in New York, and the Government of Japan through the Prime Minister’s office, and right here in Honolulu with the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa for this conference!
With the IAFOR Research Centre at the Osaka School of International Public Policy (OSIPP) at Osaka University, we have engaged in a number of interdisciplinary initiatives we believe will have an important impact on domestic and international public policy conversations. It is through conferences like these that we expand our network and partners, and we have no doubt that IICAH2022 and IICE2022 will offer a remarkable opportunity for the sharing of research and best practice, for the meeting of people and ideas. We expect the resultant professional and personal collaborations to endure for many years, and we look forward to seeing you in Honolulu!
The IAFOR International Conference on Arts & Humanities in Hawaii (IICAH2022) will be held alongside The IAFOR International Conference on Education in Hawaii (IICE2022), and many of the sessions will concentrate on areas at the intersection of education, arts and humanities. In keeping with IAFOR’s commitment to interdisciplinary study, delegates at either conference are encouraged to attend sessions in other disciplines. Registration for either conference will allow delegates to attend sessions in the other.
