call for proposals: transforming race conference

The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity has announced the Call for Proposals for its second biannual conference, entitled Transforming Race: Crisis and Opportunity in the Age of Obama, to be held March 11-13, 2010, in Columbus, Ohio.

They're seeking innovative proposals that address any of three thematic tracks: Racial Dynamics and Systems Thinking; Race Talk; and Race, Recession, and Recovery. Practitioners, community organizers, scholars, researchers, and others are invited to submit proposals for papers, entire panels, workshops, performances, fishbowls, and more.

Sounds like it's going to be a really interesting gathering. For conference details and updates, visit the Transforming Race 2010 website here. If you have questions, contact Rebecca Reno at reno.34@osu.edu. You can also download the Call for Proposals here (PDF).
