Call for Papers - Deadline Closed

For the past five years the Mid-Atlantic LGBTQA Conference has offered a variety of sessions designed to address issues of the LGBTQA community on college campuses. This year, the conference will address varying issues of prejudice and myth surrounding our diverse identities with our 2013 conference theme “Unmasking prejudice and dispelling myths in the LGBTQA world.” We would like to invite proposals on topics which might address this theme, including but not limited to:

  • Developing Allies
  • Advocacy
  • Classroom Dynamics & Educational Strategies
  • Organizing/Managing Student Groups
  • Community Relations
  • Assessment of Campus Relations
  • Networking
  • Related Research Findings in any discipline

Presentations may take many forms: a round table discussion, a workshop, a panel of academic papers, etc. Proposed sessions should be no longer than 60 minutes, including questions and answers. We would also like to encourage academic paper presentations: individuals (15-20 mins) or panels (2-3 individuals). Proposals will be accepted based on their relevance to the larger conference goals.

Proposal Deadline: July 1, 2013

Proposals should be submitted electronically via the form below.
