This conference is organized annually by graduate and undergraduate students and faculty in the region as a means of sharing research in progress, reflections on community research and action projects, dialogues on contemporary issues in social research, and issues of diversity and social justice.
All conference attendees must complete the Conference Registration Form.
Symposia (60 minutes) – Symposia consist of three diverse presentations related to a common theme. Preference will be given to submissions that describe strategies for audience engagement and participation. [Proposal word limit: 250 words]
Roundtable (60 minutes) – Roundtable sessions are designed to foster informal dialogue on issues related to the conference theme. Preference will be given to submissions that describe a clear topic, possible discussion strands, and the facilitators’ roles in exploring issues. [Proposal word limit: 250 words, include title, participant names and affiliations, email addresses]
Poster Presentation (60 minutes) – Poster presentations are opportunities for presenters to convey research, practice, or social action projects on a visual display. Posters will be organized thematically to facilitate interaction among presenters and attendees. The poster session will be interactive, with poster presenters actively discussing their research, answering questions, and addressing comments from attendees.

Innovative Sessions (i.e., performance art, art exhibit, experiential session) [Proposal word limit: 300 words, include title, participant name(s) and affiliation(s), email address(es). Make sure to clarify the session’s relationship to the theme of the conference.]
Pre-Conference Workshops (9:00-12:00, Jan. 27): Priority will be given for these 2-3 hour workshops to presenters who focus on coloniality and/or decoloniality in pedagogy, community psychology, cultural and ecological work, research, or theory. We hope that these workshops will help to introduce attendees with little or no background in decoloniality to the philosophy and praxes that underlie it. [Proposal word limit: 300 words, include title, participant name(s) and affiliation(s), email address(es). Make sure to clarify the session’s relationship to the theme of the conference.]
