Twelfth Annual "Eyes on the Mosaic" Graduate Student Conference
Rendering Race Visible: Centralizing the Effects of Racial Realities
May 7, 2005
Call for Papers/Films
Deadline for Abstract/Film Submission: March 4, 2005
This conference is designed for graduate students to present current work that draws on race within an analytical framework and/or understands race as a primary organizing factor in the social world. As a whole the conference will provide a platform for research that neither takes race for granted nor presupposes its function apart from context. In view of race/racialization as an experience/process that is made manifest in varied, often unexpected ways, submissions from all academic disciplines are welcomed.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to: Race in Literature, Historicizing Race, Nationalism, Migration/Immigration, Race and Social Stratification, Globalization, Race and Subject Formation, Politics of Social Policy, Race and Social Work, Legal Implications of Race, Race and the Arts, Scientific Racism, Race and Language, Race and Medicine, Racial Erasure, Perpetuating Race, Race(ism) in Translation, Semiotic Approaches to Race, and Race in Education.
Abstracts should be submitted, along with your contact information (name, institutional affiliation, department, e-mail address) to the e-mail address provided below by 12 noon on March 4, 2005. Submissions must be 250 words or less and must be submitted as a Microsoft Word document. Conference presentations will be approximately 20 minutes.
Film submissions should be mindful of this same 20 minute time parameter and March 4, 2005 deadline. Films can be either in DVD or VHS format and should be sent to:
