San José State University’s Silicon Valley Center for Global Studies will host a symposium, “Immigration: Policy and Reality.” This symposium will be held on April 12-13, 2012 at San José State University.
We solicit abstracts for panels, workshops, and poster sessions on immigration-related topics, such as economic issues, education, health, culture, race relations, religions, arts, immigration law, immigration reform, and immigration and social policy.
We welcome abstract submissions from scholars of various disciplines, community members and activists, artists and students.
For all Abstract submissions, please include an overall aim of the presentation, the type of proposed presentation (Panel, Workshop, Poster Session), a description of the problem or issues that the presentation would address (including its relevance to one of the areas mentioned above or other area relevant to immigrants and immigration policy), one or two learning objectives, and a brief summary of the background of the topic as space allows (see word limit below).
We have limited a total number of the panel sessions to three each day, and because of the small number of the panel sessions, the acceptance of your abstract will be based on its quality and the theme of the symposium.
The deadline for a title and 200 words or less abstract/summary, and your biographical information, is Friday, December 2, 2011.
Please send your abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please mail your submission to Yoko Baba, Department of Justice Studies, San José State University, San José, CA 95192-0050.
