The Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change invites paper proposals that would explore the following questions:
How do we craft a social justice agenda that recognizes the complex interplay of race, ethnicity, and nationality in the emerging context of transnational business, supranational governance, and cross-border labor issues?
How will shifting demographic, immigration and labor trends influence--and be influenced by the African-American experience?
How can we transform our curriculum and pedagogy to best respond to these ethnic transformations in American culture?
We anticipate making six awards of $2,000. Proposals should be submitted electronically by 30 May to email@example.com and include: (1) the title of the paper (2) the author(s), affiliation(s), and contact information, and (3) a project narrative of 500 words. A research workshop will be convened in Memphis in the fall. Papers will also be published as part of the Hooks Institute working paper series. Advanced graduate students are encouraged to apply.
