CFP: NACCS XL, Advancing from Sea to Shining ¡Sí!: Learning from our Past, Defending our Rights in the 21st Century

  Next year, the NACCS will be meeting in San Antonio from March 20 – 23, 2013 for its annual conference! The deadline to submit is October 15, 2012. Below is some information concerning the conference! The theme, “NACCS XL:  Advancing from Sea to Shining ¡Sí!,“ asserts the Association’s mission of advancing research-based knowledge and critical frameworks throughout education.  The theme recognizes that NACCS researchers have contributed to path-breaking scholarship for over four decades.  By inserting bilingual, transborder, and multicultural diversities into U.S. American higher education and public discourse, Chicana and Chicano Studies activism helped transform global thought and action in the late 20th century.  The theme’s rhyming of sea with si!—i.e., vast space with human affirmation—emphasizes the inescapable fact of pluralism as an undeniable global value. We urge participants to submit proposals that address a political climate that criminalizes members of our community and de-legitimatizes our field of study; economic policies, practices and conditions that are particularly injurious to our community; demographic changes and growth being used to generate antagonism and fear in the public at large. We especially urge presentations and discussion on the role that our artistic and cultural expression can play in assuring that we are properly imagined in this society. NACCS welcomes submissions of papers and panels to present at the conference. Deadline to submit is October 15, 2012. See the NACCS website for further information.

    Welcome, Kris. Thanks for the heads up on this. There’s just barely enough time to get a proposal in. Are you planning on submitting something?

  2. Kris Klein Hernandez

    Thanks Jared!

    I am planning on submitting! And remember, if anyone is planning on submitting, your topic does not necessarily need to be about Chican@s, but any Latin@ group!
