- Individual presentations
Four 15 minute talks on panels created by the conference chairs. These proposals should be no more than 250 words.
Groups may submit proposals for 75-minute panel presentations. These proposals should be no more than 250 words per presentation (for three presenters; fewer if more), plus a 150-word overview (so 900 words total).
- Posters or exhibits
Exhibits could include embodied performances, multimedia and material displays, and audience interaction. Proposals should be no more than 250 words.
These should focus on researching sites and/or systems of inequity (e.g., environmental, health/medical, law enforcement, housing) at various scales (local, community-based, cross-cultural, national, transnational). We especially encourage workshops that will help graduate students and other emerging scholars situate their work in the field. Proposals should be no more than 500 words.
- Advocacy Dialogues
These are conversations aimed at considering and generating possible forms of advocacy and situated action; we especially encourage cross-cultural dialogues involving local community members (e.g., academics at local institutions, members of Black Lives Matter, leaders and members of local NAACP chapters, workers in the tourism and hospitality industries). These dialogues could take any number of forms, but should include a conversational exchange and some type of audience interaction. Proposals should describe the dialogue topic, participants, and form, and should be no longer than 500 words.
