The 3rd Biennial Latina/o Studies Graduate Student Conference

Call for Proposals

Deadline: November 17, 2006

The Latina/Latino Studies Program of the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign invites proposals/abstracts for an interdisciplinary 
graduate student conference to be held at UIUC on February 23-25, 2007. The 
purpose of this Conference is to explore the historical and cultural 
processes that affect Latinas/os in the United States. We aim to contribute 
to the understanding of Latino/a communities in the U.S. by promoting 
interdisciplinary analyses of shared social, political, cultural, histories, 
and educational realities of Latinas/os. "Aqui Luchamos, Aqui Estamos: 
Reaffirming our Commitment to Activism and Resistance through Scholarship" 
will foster an ongoing dialogue across disciplines that will consider the 
commonalities, differences, and diverse experiences of Latino/a populations 
in this country. The Conference will commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the 
Latina/Latino Studies Program at UIUC. Limited funding support for travel 
may be available.

Topics could include but are not limited to:
. Activism
. Issues of social justice
. Reclaiming space
. Identity politics
. Building community
. Immigration and Transnationalism
. Citizenship
. Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality
. Chicana/Chicano Studies
