The Center for Research on Women and the Hooks Institute at the University of Memphis invite proposals for papers to be delivered March 24-26, 2005 at a multidisciplinary, international symposium on NAFTA. Proposals that address social inequality and social justice activism are particularly welcome. Appropriate topics include, but are not limited to, labor activism and worker-to-worker exchanges, local community impacts and civic engagement, the environmental consequences of NAFTA, gender and im/migration, citizenship and racial/ethnic identities, and transnational communities. Interested scholars and activists/practitioners should submit a proposal of approximately 500 words (excluding references) that summarizes their topic, methods of investigation and conclusions. A brief biographical statement and full contact information should also be included. Food and lodging expenses at the symposium will be covered for authors of successful proposals. Limited travel assistance is also available, with priority given to participants from Mexico, Canada and other locations outside of the United States.
