In 1997, several scholars of multicultural education, from four countries including the host country, were invited to participate in the “International Symposium on Multicultural Education: Theories and Practices” at the National Taiwan Normal University. The purpose of this symposium was to present to a mainly Taiwanese audience (educators, policymakers, community leaders) perspectives on the theories and practices of multicultural education, including problems and issues confronting the field.

This 5-day symposium (May 29–June 2) also afforded the opportunity for the international group of scholars presenting papers to both have time to listen (and hear) one another, and to raise questions about the nature of multicultural education, including the conditions of multicultural education in countries not represented at the symposium. Throughout the days these scholars spent together, it was often acknowledged that the discussions were richly informative, in part because they illuminated the fact that multicultural education, in some simple or complex form, was underway in many different countries, and in part because it became obvious that there was a great need for scholars of multicultural education to know and understand the conditions of multicultural education in a global context.

It was during one of these discussions, particularly the one that took place on a bus traveling on a very windy road to visit some of Taiwan’s schools and cultural sites, that the idea was proposed to continue these discussions the following year at the 1998 American Educational Research Association’s (AERA) Annual Meeting in San Diego, California. It was also proposed that these discussions be enriched and expanded by including scholars on multicultural education from additional countries.

Christine Sleeter, who had accepted the position as Program Chair of the 1998 AERA Annual Meeting and one of the scholars on the bus, embraced the idea and said, “Send me a proposal!” “Conceptualizing How ‘Multicultural Education’ Is Being Played Out Globally: The Beginning of a Dialogue” was the title of the 1998 AERA symposium co-chaired by Carl Grant and Joy Lei. Quotation marks were purposely placed around multicultural education to acknowledge that it is a term widely used in some countries, but not the term of preference in other xi countries. The symposium brought together nine scholars, who addressed multicultural education in nine different geographical regions.
