FIRST CONFERENCE SCHEDULED for NOVEMBER 5-6, 2010 DEPAUL UNIVERSITY, CHICAGO , IL

CALL for SEMINAR, PANEL, and ROUNDTABLE PROPOSALS for the FIRST ANNUAL

CONFERENCE:

“Emerging Paradigms in Critical Mixed Race Studies”

Conference Description: Emerging Paradigms in Critical Mixed Race
Studies, the 1st annual Critical Mixed Race Studies Conference, will
take place at DePaul University in Chicago , November 4-7, 2010. The
CMRS conference brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines
nationwide. The 1st annual Critical Mixed Race Studies conference,
hosted by De Paul University, is devoted to the general theme
“Emerging Paradigms of Critical Mixed Race Studies.” We invite panels,
seminars, and proposals that address this theme, although participants
are welcome to propose papers and panels that speak to their own
research, pedagogical, and community-based interests as well.

Mission

It is our mission to advance Critical Mixed Race Studies [CMRS] as an
academic discipline and a professional field committed to excellence
in teaching, research and service to the community.

Goal

It is our goal to develop curriculum at all grade levels; to develop
resources with community organizations; to increase and disperse
knowledge through conferences, summer institutes, workshops,
professional contacts, reports, papers, discussions, and publications;
and to support an anti-racist mixed heritage movement.

Vision

We envision a world in which students at all grade levels receive
accurate and significant information about the history, cultural
productions, psychology, health, religious studies, politics, and
sociology of people, families and communities of mixed heritage.
Rather than being largely ignored in academic circles or discussed as
a side bar in existing theoretical frameworks and academic
disciplines, we envision a world in which mixed heritage individuals
and communities are centered and in which CMRS generates intersections
between Ethnic studies, Queer theory, Feminist theory, Critical Race
theory and other academic disciplines such as: Literary, Cultural,
Sociology, Psychology, History, Anthropology, Health, American, “Area”
and other related studies in local, national, international and
transnational contexts.

Values

We value what can be learned through the critical study of mixed race
people, their experiences, their cultural productions, and the social,
political, historical, legal, and economic forces that shape the world
in which their experiences and identities are constructed. We value
the transformation of ideologies around race and identity through this
study. We value the difference that teachers can make at all grade
levels by incorporating CMRS into their curriculum and that community
organizations can provide by serving with an awareness of CMRS.

What is Critical Mixed Race Studies?

CMRS is the transracial, transdisciplinary, and transnational
critical analysis of the institutionalization of social, cultural, and
political orders based on dominant conceptions of race. CMRS
emphasizes the mutability of race and the porosity of racial
boundaries in order to critique processes of racialization and social
stratification based on race. CMRS addresses local and global systemic
injustices rooted in systems of racialization.

DEADLINE FOR ALL PROPOSALS: May 1, 2010
SELECTIONS WILL BE FINALIZED BY July 1, 2010
