The Frederick Douglass Institute Collaborative - Ghana Interdisciplinary Conference
University of Cape Coast, Ghana
The Frederick Douglass Institute Collaborative of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education is seeking paper submissions for an interdisciplinary conference on diversity and multiculturalism in the global community. The conference, co-sponsored by the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, will focus on the politics of diversity and multiculturalism in the 21st century, with a particular emphasis on bridging the divide between internationalism and U.S. domestic discourse on diversity, especially as they relate to education. This will be a unique opportunity to engage, support, and build a broad network and global coalition of professionals committed to expanding knowledge in the areas of diversity, multiculturalism, and internationalism. We are interested in paper and panel proposals that explore a variety of subjects including, but not limited to:
*Global perspectives, multi-culturalism and/or cultural diversity in teaching and learning in higher education
Select papers may be considered for a publication arising from the conference.
Pre-conference activities for the Diversity and Multiculturalism in the Global Community conference begin with arrival in the Ghanaian capital of Accra on May 20 and include tours of major historical and cultural landmarks in Accra, including a tour of slave castles in Cape Coast and a day-trip to a traditional African village. Indigenous Ghanaian cultural dance and song performances and an art exhibition by local artists will also be featured. The conference will kick-off with a VIP reception and dinner on May 22. The post-conference itinerary includes tour of Kakum Rainforest in Cape Coast, and free time in Accra.
