Who Am I – U? : An Inclusive Conference on Identities
Indiana University, Bloomington
March 3-4, 2011
Call for Proposals
The purpose of this conference is to engage all Bloomington faculty, students, staff, administrators, alumni, and emeriti, as well as members of the community, in building a culturally literate and inclusive campus. Through panels, workshops, roundtables, poster sessions, blog sessions, artwork displays, word slams, dance and performances, this conference approaches inclusion as a process of intellectual and creative inquiry that is informed by practice and that informs future practice. By an inclusive campus, we mean policies and practices that promote understanding of cultural, physical, and mental differences, and that encourage cooperation across the lines of race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status, gender, generation, abilities, sexualities, and institutional positions. A campus is inclusive when all of its members, especially those from underserved populations, can thrive and succeed, individually and collectively. It is culturally literate when its members, majority and minority, have knowledge of, respect for, and the skills necessary to interact with people from other cultures in both domestic and international contexts. In working toward these shared goals, we will contribute to a multidisciplinary knowledge commons and enrich our sense of self-efficacy as engaged citizens meeting both the challenges and the opportunities of our global 21st Century world.
This conference continues the mission of ARC 2010! Attention, Reflection, Connection: Steps Toward an Inclusive Campus. We welcome you as partners and value the different ways you will be contributing to this conference.
