Friend of the blog and Villanova PhD student Mark Westmoreland is looking to put together a panel for a UPenn conference. Please see the details below, including his contact information.
The Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs
2014 Conference OCTOBER 9–11, 2014
The University of Pennsylvania and Villanova University
I am trying to form a panel on the theme of Race/Racism and Revolution broadly construed. An individual paper might involve the idea of race as political identity in decolonial movements. Or one might speak to the role of race in Négritude or Créolité. Another might consider race and issues such as profiling, imprisonment, education, or healthcare. Or another might highlight the conflicting interactions between life philosophy and racial biologism. If you are interested, the please email me a 250 word abstract by May 25th. I can be reached at mark [dot] westmoreland [at] villanova [dot] edu
