DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 10/21 | Ethnic Minority Affairs and LGBTQ+ Committees 5th Annual Symposium

Please consider submitting a proposal for the upcoming Ethnic Minority Affairs and LGBTQ+ Committees 5th annual symposium on November 11. The official invite is attached. THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 21ST, and the process isn’t complicated or cumbersome. Here is all you need: https://www.cu.edu/faculty-council/lgbtq-emac-symposium-2016 (https://www.cu.edu/faculty-council/lgbtq-emac-symposium-2016 )

The CU Faculty Council LGBTQ+ and Ethnic and Minority Affairs (EMAC) committees invite you to present your research, creative and teaching activities on difference that makes a difference.

Recently we have witnessed unprecedented levels of bias, discrimination and violence against people of color, queer people of color, and the LGBTQ community, both in the U.S. and around the world. In the U.S., over 200 anti-LGBT bills have been introduced across the country. We have lost hundreds of lives to mass shootings, hate crimes, terrorism, and police violence.

During this wrenching time, both committees would like to create an opportunity for CU scholars of diverse communities and their allies to share research on the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality, as well as on transformative teaching practices that will contribute to the amelioration and eradication of social injustice.

We invite contributions from research in your respective fields such as the arts, psychology, criminal justice, and cultural, global and media studies, to name a few. We invite presentations on ways we can bridge activism and scholarship and teaching; and we invite submissions on inclusive teaching practices, improving campus climate for marginalized groups, and ways to better support faculty of color, queer faculty of color, and LGBTQ+ faculty at CU.

We invite submissions in the following formats:

1. Workshops (1 hour)
2. Individual paper presentations (10-12 minutes)
3. Fully organized panels (1 hour)
4. Poster sessions

When: Friday, November 11, 2016

Where: University Memorial Center, CU Boulder
