"Trading Justice: NAFTA's New Links and Conflicts"

"Trading Justice: NAFTA's New Links and Conflicts," a transnational 
symposium co-sponsored by the Center for Research on Women and the 
Benjamin L. Hooks Institute for Social Change, will be held on March 
24-26, 2005 at the University of Memphis. The opening plenary on March 
24 will feature representatives from each of the three signatory 
countries to the North American Free Trade Agreement: Drs. Isidro 
Morales Moreno (Mexico), Marjorie Cohen (Canada) and Michael Dreiling 
(USA). Additional presentations by such scholars at Drs. Ann E. 
Kingsolver (USA) and Monica Gambrill (Mexico) will address NAFTA's 
implications for civic engagement, cross-border organizing, and 
corporate environmental practices, among other topics. The symposium 
will be conducted primarily in English with interpretation services 
available for Spanish speakers upon request.

The cost of registration for the three-day event is $75.00 and includes

Todd Drake is an artist who opens up the art-making process to the 
influence and contributions of people he encounters in diverse 
settings--from truck stops to museum exhibits. Currently a Rockefeller 
fellow at UNC-Chapel Hill, Drake will participate in the NAFTA symposium 
by creating art from the doodles and drawings of other attendees. An 
example of his work is below.
