Celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Journal Educación Superior y Sociedad (ESS)
26 May 2021 hora: 10:00 am - 11:10 am
The journal Educación Superior y Sociedad ESS (Higher Education and Society) reaches its thirtieth anniversary and celebrates it with a virtual meeting in consonance with its academic and intellectual work. The meeting’s agenda includes the presentation of the contents of its anniversary issue Tres décadas de investigación en educación superior en América Latina y el Caribe: pasado, presente y futuro (Three decades of research in higher education in Latin America and the Caribbean: past, present and future, number 1, Vol. 33, year 2021), which brings a retrospective and visionary view on the research carried out in the field of higher education and its thematic trends. Afterwards, two conferences with experts on higher education will introduce reflections and considerations about the past, present and future of higher education in the world, and the challenges that the sector currently faces. It will conclude with the prospect of the challenges confronting ESS in the immediate future.
The anniversary journal presents fifteen articles written by a group of valuable and highly recognized academics, many of them inescapable references for the field of higher education in various countries of our region. This volume adds to a profuse multiplicity of publications and academic activities that, through virtual platforms, have been deployed in the last year, keeping the considerations and systematic reflection of the academic community alive within each country, and also internationally.
