Interdisciplinary Conference on Race
Monmouth University, West Long Branch, New Jersey
November 13, 14, 15, 2008
"Future of An Illusion, Future of the Past"
We seek papers, panels, workshops and proposals for an interdisciplinary conference on race related to the topics of race, genetics, healthcare disparities, and DNA ancestry tracing. Discussions about race and racial identification in contemporary society have become increasingly complex as a result of developments in the study of human genetics. The study of human genetics has come to have a profound influence on our understanding of social and historical relationships within and between human groups amid the rise of global multiracial consciousness movements. Does race have a future or is race an illusion? Is the word race obselete? These are some of the questions that shape the core themes of our interdisciplinary conference on race. Please submit a one page abstract and brief cv to futureofRace@gmail.com by June 1, 2008. See the conference website for further details.
