Who Counts & Who's Counting?--Submission deadline December 1
full name / name of organization:
National Association of Ethnic Studies
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS/PROPOSALS
The National Association for Ethnic Studies invites abstracts/proposals for papers, panels, workshops, or media productions from people in all disciplines and interdisciplinary areas of the arts, business, social sciences, humanities, science and education on politics, community and ethnicity. How do classifications of race and ethnicity define our lives? How are they part of our individual and collective thinking? How do they become statistics? In contrast, how do issues of race and ethnicity defy demarcation? How do race and ethnicity challenge the interests and power struggles implicit in shaping definitions?
250-word abstracts/proposals are invited to submit by December 1, 2009, which relate to any aspect of the conference theme, with the participant’s institutional affiliation and mailing address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address. The abstract/proposal must indicate whether the presentation is an individual paper or a complete panel presentation and if A/V equipment is needed.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSIONS:
NOTE: A separate abstract must be submitted for each presenter (even co-authored papers, roundtable presentations and pre-arranged panels) with complete contact information.
The 2010 annual conference will create a lively forum for the discussion of issues related to ethnic communities, including, but not limited to the following: the 2008 presidential election; American Indian federal recognition; sovereignty and recognition in a global economy; counting in the 2010 census; undocumented workers; LGBTQ rights; unincorporated communities; immigration at the local level; census and racial/ethnic identities; human trafficking; negotiating dual citizenships; limited citizenships; redistricting; census data and its impact on resource access; higher education; student loans; citizenship; health care by the numbers; philanthropy and ethnic communities; defining minorities and majorities; affirmative action issues; defining and supporting art; women’s resources; economic ramifications of census results.
