Humanity, wildlife and the environment have all been negatively impacted by polarizing inequalities.

We are interested in submissions that explore gender, racial, sexual, religious, socio-economic and environmental inequalities represented in literature, film as well as other mediums and the changes that have occurred through dialogues inside and outside of the classroom about various forms of inequality.

Topics of interest may include but are not limited to:
