2020 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebrations
Call for workshop proposals: Monday, January 27, 3pm & 4:15pm
This call asks for workshops that interrogate the relations of poverty, economic injustice, and bodies. Examples include, but are not limited to: carceral bodies, exploited labored bodies and wealth inequality, socioeconomic dimensions (and economic injustices) of bodily health, racialized bodies and economic injustices/exploitation. We are looking for a range of proposals, from across campus. We are particularly interested in proposals that illustrate interactive components involving students.
Other examples might be:
- historical issues of health and human rights violations
- health care access as a human right
- reproductive justice, race and ethnicity in 2020 and beyond
- economics of carceral systems [prisons, border camps, and beyond]
There will be two successive interdisciplinary workshop times, with two slots for each time period:
- 3:00 pm MLK Interdisciplinary Workshop I (Workshops A & B)
- 4:15pm MLK Interdisciplinary Workshop II (Workshops A & B)
We ask that workshop proposals be submitted by January 13, 2020. Please submit proposals electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org (Veerendra P. Lele, Associate Provost for Diversity).
