Innovative and enthusiastic presenters are welcomed for the first Human Rights and Social Justice: 2008 and Beyond Conference, to be held at Florida Atlantic University’s Davie campus in sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. This one day conference on Friday, April 4, 2008 will bring together activists, educators, students, and professionals in an effort to assess the state of human rights and social justice in the U.S. and to offer visions and recommendations for change.
Each presenter will have 30 minutes to share their knowledge on some facet of human rights and social justice. Possible topics include domestic violence, privacy rights, death penalty, equity in education, and living wages, although innovative ideas are welcome! Consistent with the theme of the conference, those selected to present will be required to do so in a non-traditional format. Small amounts of traditional lecture are acceptable, but presentations must include another mode of presentation, such as a performance, interactive activity, reenactments, or role play. Creativity is strongly encouraged!
Please submit abstracts no longer than one page to Dr. Laura Finley, Director of the Center for Living and Teaching Peace. Abstracts should include a description of the topic, how it fits the theme of Human Rights and Social Justice: 2008 and Beyond, and the methods of presentation to be used, including any audiovisual needs. Abstracts must also include complete contact information, including full name, affiliation (if any), mailing address and email address, and telephone number. A resume or c.v. should be included as well. Please all materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 29, 2008.
