The Penn State College of Education will host an interdisciplinary civil rights conference and related graduate student symposium, June 6-7, 2014.
For this conference, we will commission conceptual, empirical, policy, and/or legal analyses that authors will present at the conference. Papers will be subsequently published in one or more volumes after the conference (pending successful revision in a book, special journal issue, and/or law review).
We will also include invited speakers, such as federal government officials working in civil rights and education, educators who are currently implementing integration or affirmative action plans, and long-time scholars in the field.
We plan to hold a graduate symposium on Friday morning, a dinner Friday evening with a major speaker, and a day and half-long conference beginning on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday.
The intended audience includes academics in education, social sciences, public policy & law, policymakers, practitioners (P-20), legal and policy advocates, civil rights groups, graduate students, journalists, political commentators, attorneys, community leaders, legislators, and judges.
The call for proposals due October 15, 2013.
