CEP Pre-Con Forum

2022 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
DEADLINE: APRIL 18, 2022, 4:00PM PACIFIC/LAS VEGAS TIME
The primary purpose of CEP, as stated in its by-laws, is to facilitate the participation of scholars from ethnically and racially minoritized groups in the affairs of the Association. The CEP Pre-Conference Forum consists of two components: (1) the presentation of research/scholarly papers, roundtables, poster, and symposia and (2) the CEP Mentor- Protégé Program, which provides mentoring/professional development sessions).
Towards that end, the CEP Pre-Conference offers opportunities for attendees to focus intensively, extensively, and specifically on issues of race, ethnicity, and racism, and the intersections of racism with other interlocking systems of oppression. It recognizes the urgency of not only decentering whiteness, but imagining other ways of being and knowing that deliberately attend to the needs, dreams, and desires of people of color. In keeping with the general conference theme, Humanizing Higher Education, we envision this year’s CEP pre-conference as a space for centering healing and joy as important dimensions of a humanizing experience. Education as liberation calls for intentional efforts to humanize the oppressed who are often not seen within educational structures. Within this space, we encourage members to see each other, to heal mentally, physically, and emotionally, and to advance Black & Brown joy at the intersections of other social identities. It is an alternative space to think about and prioritize what matters most to us, as racially and ethnically minoritized people, and those we serve; to celebrate the experiences and developments of those we co-create knowledge with; and to create opportunities that promote the healing, joy, and growth of the minoritized populations that exist within today’s colleges and universities. CEP is an environment that invites new questions, validates the complexities and intersections of racial and ethnic identities and the experiences encountered as a result thereof, and invites the creation of tools that enable us to shift our investigations to what truly matters.
With this in mind, CEP is interested in proposals that explore humanizing practices and advance healing and joy across all educational areas to include, but not limited to, research, teaching, service, support, and interactions. Thus, we invite scholars to
In study with and support of racially and ethnically minoritized people in higher education, what new modes of insight, intervention, and critique are made possible at the convergence of our histories, epistemologies, and methodologies? What humanizing, healing, and joyful practices require a transformation in institutional practice, research procedures, and policy in the higher education context?
The CEP Pre-Conference Forum peer review process reflects high expectations of rigor and quality. Sessions selected are those that expand, challenge, and shift the field’s thinking, practice, and praxis. We welcome proposals that engage in analyses of white supremacy, settler colonialism, ethnocentrism, and hetero-patriarchy through systemic lenses. Proposals which confront racism with other interlocking structures of marginalization and privilege (e.g., social class, ability, sex assigned at birth, gender identity and expression, sexuality, religion/spirituality/faith, and global/transnational) are especially encouraged.
