York’s Centre for Human Rights is inviting individuals to submit proposals for the 2015 Inclusion Day conference, Past Histories & Present Stories: Finding Meaning in Human Rights.
The conference, being held Jan. 28 at the Keele campus, will explore the following themes:
- How are human rights made real?
- How are identities navigated/changed?
- What are the new human rights battles being fought or are we still fighting the same issues from the past?
Some of the areas that proposals could focus on, but are not limited to:
• Indigenous knowledge
• Intersectional identities
• Race and racialization
• Gender expression/expectations/identity
• (dis)Abilities • Business, Science & Human Rights
• Knowledge production & pedagogy
• Immigration/Refugee issues • Community leadership & mobilisation
• Sexual orientation • Social Media & Human Rights
Presenters may submit proposals for a 75-minute session in one of the following formats – a roundtable discussion, do-it-yourself workshop, individual or panel presentation, interactive workshop, dialogue process or an artistic/creative presentation and discussion.
