LACS is now accepting proposals for the 2019 University of Michigan - University of Puerto Rico Collaborative Symposium
Theme: "Race, Ethnicity, and Nationalism across Borders"
Location: University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus, San Juan, PR
Symposium Dates: March 7-8, 2019
We are calling on graduate students from the University of Michigan, working from any discipline, methodologies, or perspective, in any part of the world or historical contexts, to present on the theme of political tensions and identity in a globalized world. The objective of this symposium is to incorporate the concepts of race, ethnicity, nationalism, political tension, questions of identity, and globalization into academic curriculum and teaching models at the university and K-12 school level. We seek graduate students who will present a pedagogical talk related to their research and propose ways to incorporate that research into K-12 school classrooms.
Selected proposals will be considered for full or partial travel funding to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
PROPOSAL DEADLINE: January 18, 2019
Final Deliverables due: March 1, 2019
