EXTENDED CFP - 2nd International Conference on Racisms in the New World Order (6-7 Dec 2007; NEW Deadline: 5 Sept 2007)

We have extended the Call for Papers until 5 September 2007 for the Second International Conference on Racisms in the New World Order.

The themes of the 2007 conference will provide an opportunity for participants to engage with some of the challenging and fundamental questions about racisms in contemporary society. This engagement will be through the various lenses that different participants bring to the conference - for example, as researchers, policy makers, advocates and individuals who experience racism. The following themes have been established as a framework for potential conference attendees to develop conference papers. The themes will also assist in ensuring that the conference is meaningful to practice, balanced in program content and relevant to a diverse audience.
  • Manifestations of racism
  • Responses to racism - current practice of what works and what does not
  • Nationalism
  • Developing anti-racist futures - visualising alternatives for the future
