Eighth Annual Conference
Cambio de Colores (Change of Colors)
Latinos in the Heartland
May 18-20, 2009
Call for Papers Date:
Cambio de Colores is an annual conference that brings together researchers, practitioners, and community members to discuss the issues that Missouri and Heartland states face as a result of the increased numbers of immigrants—most of them Latino or Hispanic—settling in almost every county of the state.
The conference will provide a platform to present, discuss, share, learn, and identify critical areas needed in developing information and promising practices to facilitate the successful transition of Latino newcomers into our communities, as well as to provide these communities the elements to make these changes in a way that is beneficial to all. It will also be a very timely event to see the effects that current nation- and statewide discussions about immigrants and immigration are having in this transition.
These are the themes that provide the conference framework:
1. Change and Integration
2. Civil Rights and Political Participation
5. Youth, Families and Communities
6. Society and Culture
Please indicate the theme with which your paper/panel best fits.
Abstracts are due by February 1, 2009
