The Center for Human Rights and Civil Liberties at the University of Southern Mississippi is issuing a call for papers relating to human rights activism - its practice, its purpose and its intersections with policy and culture. "Rights and the Role of Activism: A Conference on Human Rights" will take place from April 27th to April 30th, 2006 at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS. The conference will bring together scholars, activists, students, and leaders of government for scholarly panels and practical workshops about human rights activism. Panel proposals should include the panel topic, a paragraph-long abstract for each of the papers to be presented, and a brief CV for each presenter. Individual paper proposals, including a paper abstract and a CV, will also be accepted. Abstracts should also indicate the type of presentation, e.g., whether a traditional paper or a more interactive presentation. Please send materials as Word (.doc) files to Bob.Press@usm.edu. Review of proposals will begin on December 15th, 2005 but proposals will be accepted for consideration until January 10th, 2006.
