Update: Call for Proposal for Rutgers’ Annual 2019 Academic Symposium - Proposal Submission Extended to February 25, 2019

Dear Rutgers Academic Community:

We are pleased to announce the call for individual presentation proposals and panel sessions for our annual academic symposium to be held on Thursday, April 4th, 2019 at the College Avenue Student Center Multipurpose Room, New Brunswick.  This year’s theme “Scholarship, Research, and Best Practices in Diversity & Inclusion: Exploring Current Findings and Pursuing New Pathways” provides a venue for researchers to present findings of studies and increase awareness of new approaches in research, emerging methods, and innovative strategies in diversity and inclusion.  The symposium provides an important vehicle for the exchange of ideas and highlights the scholarly research of our faculty, graduate students, and associates from all campus locations.

We are honored to have as our keynote speaker, John Kuo Wei (Jack) Tchen, newly appointed Inaugural Clement A. Price Chair in Public History and the Humanities, and Director of the Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience.  He is a renowned scholar, historian, curator, and cultural organizer.  He co-founded the Museum of Chinese in America in New York City, where he continues to serve as a senior historian, and has been building research collections about Asians in the Americas for more than three decades.

Please see the call for proposal for details and submission process.  Proposals will be reviewed by a faculty committee, and invitations will be issued no later than March 8, 2019.  If you would like to present your diversity/inclusion related research, please respond to this call no later than February 25, 2019.

I hope you will join us to share your work with our community.  If you have any questions please contact Glenda Daniel at 848-932-4391 or email glenda.daniel@rutgers.edu.
