Call for Proposals
This year marks the 21st Cambio de Colores-Change of Colors Conference, which has become the place for stakeholders to explore how our communities adapt to and benefit from demographic changes and to share how to enhance Latin@/Latinx/Hispanic and newcomer integration and well-being. This year, we welcome proposals for posters, presentations, organized panels, and workshops on promising practices and/or research, especially as related to our theme on “Identidades: Intersectionalities in the Latin@ Community and Beyond”— which addresses the diversity of Latine and immigrant/refugee communities. This includes modes of discrimination and privilege that Latine individuals and newcomers face according to their sex, origin, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, level of education, complexion, languages, and more. We are curious to learn from proposals that explore how these and other factors come together to create identities that shape the experiences of Latine populations and newcomers, as well as how promising practices can recognize intersectionality and individuals’ integration into ever-changing communities.
Continuing our tradition of promoting interdisciplinary conversations across research, practice, and advocacy, we invite service providers, grassroots organizations, educators, artists, academic researchers, students, and extension specialists to submit proposals (500-word limit) at any scale, from local conditions to national or global situations, by January 6, at 11:59 p.m. on our conference website: https://cvent.me/W08L3Z
