Racialized Students Resistance! 2014 Conference
call for abstracts
We are pleased to announce our call for abstracts for Racialized Students Resistance! 2014 Conference organized by the Centre for Race Autobiography Gender and Age (RAGA) Graduate and Undergraduate Student Networks. We welcome post-secondary students from the RAGA Networks to submit abstracts (to join one of the networks, please see information below) for either an oral or poster presentation.
This conference welcomes presentations which centre on critical approaches to Indigenous, critical race and feminist scholarships, including Indigenous Feminisms, Post/Colonial, Anti-Racism, Mestiza, Black Feminist Thought and LGBTQIA scholarship. The one day conference focuses on enacting processes of unmasking; de/reconstructing; in/visibilizing; reclaiming; and creating. The Racialized Students Resistance! 2014 Conference will offer a critically informed platform to address subtle and explicit institutionalized systems of violence and oppression – often experienced by racialized individuals and their various communities.
We encourage the widest possible range of presentation topics that embrace intersectional critical approaches. We challenge ourselves to include multiple and alternative knowledges that disrupt dominant academic frameworks. We purposefully seek diverse presentation formats including art talks, oral presentations, spoken word, and short films/documentaries. We also support non-traditional poster presentation submissions (i.e. collages, photographic vignettes, and all forms of visual art).
For more information about the submission process, please visit RAGA Network blog http://ragastudentnetwork.wordpress.com/. All primary authors will receive an email confirmation regarding their submission. Upon completion of the review process, all authors will receive a decision notification.
Submission deadline: February 19, 2014
