Call for Proposals: GPSS Academic Conference, Dec 11

Call for Proposals: GPSS Academic Conference

Deadline: Proposals due December 11, 2019

Are you conducting research or scholarship that pushes the boundaries of your field? Are you interested in interdisciplinary methods and topics? Are you looking to practice or further develop your professional skills? If so, you should consider responding to this call for proposals for the 2020 GPSS Academic Conference. The theme for this conference is Breaking Boundaries and it aims to provide space for topics and subjects that might not find it at more traditional venues.

The theme for this conference is Breaking Boundaries with the encouragement that graduate and professional students take this opportunity to push the boundaries of their fields, especially when topics they want to cover may not be warmly accepted by traditional conferences in their respective fields. The idea is to encourage not only interdisciplinarity, but outside-the-box scholarship that can motivate uncharted scholastic territory. While the theme is targeted toward transformative thinking and scholarship, any and all graduate or professional students are invited to apply regardless of their topic. It is an interdisciplinary conference intended to provide opportunities for students to develop presentation, public speaking, and networking skills without the travel costs.

The goal of this conferences is to promote connections across people, disciplines, and minds. It also seeks to question paradigms and structures that perpetuate oppression and barriers which affect not only our personal lives, but our professional and academic experiences as well. There is not always space for these conversations. Therefore, this conference theme is an invitation to contribute thoughts, research, and perspectives related to race, equity, and social progress.

You can participate in any one of these methods:
  • Workshops
  • Posters
  • Panels
  • Keynote Speaker
  • Chairing a Session

Conference is scheduled for February 27, 2020.
