James Madison College is hosting their 11th biennial Race in the 21st Century America (i.e. RACE) conference on Monday, April 1, 2019 from 8:30 AM-7:00 PM in the Kellogg Center. The biennial Race in the 21st Century America conference brings to campus leading scholars, community activists, public officials and residents, representing racial, ethnic, gender, sexuality and other forms of diversity, to participate in an important conversation with the Michigan State University community, as well as Lansing area residents, about the problem of race in America. The race conference, as we call our project, is fundamentally designed to examine systems of power and privilege in the United States, especially the impact of these ‘systems’ on communities of color.
We invite faculty, staff, and students to submit a proposal to participate in our upcoming conference at the appropriate links below. Scholars and students at institutions/organizations outside of MSU are welcome to apply as well. Please share widely.
Call for Student Proposals (open to current undergraduate and graduate students)
Call for Scholarly Proposals (open to faculty, specialists, staff, and practitioner-scholars)
