Conference Details

We are planning an exciting conference in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans. We certainly hope you will join us! We are seeking quality proposals for sessions that address action and change, particularly with a socially just focus to develop a productive and enjoyable conference.

Our conference officially opens on Wednesday morning though there will be an informal get together on Tuesday night for attendees present. We seek submission for sessions on Thursday and Friday that include workshops, symposiums, book talks, and conversation circles.

We will meet daily for a Town Hall, our democratic space for conversation and decision-making with all conference participants. Lunch will be provided each day in conjunction with our Town Hall. Town Halls provide a collective time for the attendees to address power, privilege, and supremacy in our work and organization as well as conduct organizational business.

We invite proposals that:

  • Share ideas and efforts for action and change in local settings, particularly in the presenter’s locality;
    For example, a presenter might discuss how educators, students, parents, and other community members are working toward a restructuring of schools and other educational institutions in a way that both accommodates student-centered learning in the community spaces they inhabit and addresses issues of school environment design and interconnectedness of community.
  • Present research finding on reform efforts, particularly focused on a local context;
    For example, research into the effectiveness of outreach efforts on educating a local community to participate in farm to table enterprises.
  • Analyze or critique situations or contexts to focus needed efforts for change.
    For example, how do historical and contemporary practices of power, privilege and supremacy impact design efforts we employ to erase those practices?
  • Fit our conference and organizational focus, or extend our field of vision, in ways we have not yet considered or anticipated
