Continuing the Conversation:
Religion and Spirituality in LGBTQA Communities
November 7 - 8, 2014
Call for Presentations
For the past six 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 religion and spirituality surrounding our diverse identities with our conference theme “Continuing the Conversation: Religion and Spirituality in LQBTQA Communities.” We would like to invite proposals on topics which might address this theme, including but not limited to:
- Developing allies
- Classroom dynamics & educational strategies
- Organizing/managing student groups
- Community relations
- Autoethnographic and performative narratives
- Support systems and networking
- Related research findings in any discipline
Presentations may take many forms: a round table discussion, a symposium or workshop, a panel of academic papers, etc. Proposed symposia or workshops should be no longer than 60 minutes, including questions and answers. We would also like to encourage the submission of academic paper presentations: individuals (15-20 minutes) that could be grouped together or proposed panels (2-3 individuals) that could fill the allotted 60 minutes. Proposals will be evaluated and accepted based on their quality and relevance to the conference and community. To best accommodate all participants, we cannot guarantee your first duration preference.
Proposal Deadline: August 1, 2014
Proposals should be submitted electronically via the form below.
Note: All sessions submitted by students should include the name of the Faculty Advisor.
