Type: Calls For Papers [View all]
Posted by: FATE (Foundations in Art: Theory & Education)
Deadline: Mon, August 14th, 2017

 FATE’s (Foundations in Art: Theory & Education) Affiliate session is looking for presenters at CAA’s 2018 conference in Los Angeles, Feb 21-24:

Let’s Dance, But Don’t Call Me Baby: Dialogue, Empathy, and Inclusion in the Classroom and Beyond
Feeling welcome, acknowledged, and heard encourages learning. Fostering inclusiveness and empathy on behalf of minority students legitimizes perspectives. This is especially important for first-year and transfer students, both majority and minority, who are immersed in a brand-new environment that may be radically different from their backgrounds. How do we build trust and empathy between faculty, students, peers, and others in our classrooms and communities? How do we create a welcoming and inclusive environment? What has worked? What has gone terribly wrong? Where do we go from here? Examples of readings, projects, tools, and exercises for building inclusive, encouraging, and productive dialogues are all of interest. An open roundtable discussion will continue during FATE’s Business Meeting.

Please submit a 250 word abstract to:  Naomi J. Falk: and Richard Moninski:
