Call for papers for the upcoming Minnesota Symposium on Disability Studies

Minnesota Symposium on Disability Studies
University of Minnesota
July 29-31, 2011

Call for Papers
Disability and Identity in the 21st Century

In recent years, the "minority model" that shaped advances in disability rights at the end of the twentieth century has come under scrutiny both for its failure to acknowledge the full variety of lived experiences and for the backlash this model engendered. Activists and theorists have begun to posit disability as a transient and situational phenomenon, one whose meaning and impact are ever in flux, shaped by stigma, economic access, perceptions of pain and its management, medications, access to support services, a sense of community and shared experiences with others, etc. New scholarship invites more nuanced consideration and new interpretations of the contexts--biomedical, educational, professional, humanistic, social, cultural--in which these identities are expressed and experienced. Proposals in any area of specialization and pertaining to any area of the world are welcome.

This symposium will bring together scholars working in disability studies for a weekend of shared research, community, and dynamic interdisciplinary discussion.

Keynotes

Ravi Malhotra, University of Ottawa
"Finding a Voice of Their Own: Exploring Disability Identity and the Articulation of Disability Rights through the Narratives of Young Adults with Physical Disabilities"

Ellen Samuels, University of Wisconsin
"Ranges of Motion: Disability, Biocertification, and the Parking Permit Paradox"


The Minnesota Symposium on Disability Studies will take place at the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus. This symposium is the result of collaboration between the Interdisciplinary Graduate Group in Disability Studies, The School of Music, and the Office for Equity and Diversity at the University of Minnesota.

Thanks to the generosity of The Office of Graduate Education, the registration fee will be waived for participants who are invited to present at the symposium. Regular registration for other attendees is $40; student registration is $20. Updates about the symposium will be posted at:

http://blog.lib.umn.edu/gara0030/iggds/

Abstracts are due by May 6, 2011 and should be sent as an attachment to both
Bartek Plichta plich002@umn.edu and Tammy Berberi berberit@morris.umn.edu

(Questions may be addressed to either of the above).

When: February 9th to 11th, 2011
Where: University Radisson Hotel, Minneapolis, MN

CALL FOR POSTERS
DEADLINE: JANUARY 21, 2011

The University of Minnesota's Counseling and Consulting Services (UCCS) is pleased to announce the Call for Posters for the annual Big Ten Counseling Center Conference. This year's conference asks participants to consider what they do to sustain vision, vitality, and passion in the face of limited resources and increasing student demand. Our shared reality is one of being asked to do more with less: more service to students, faculty, administrators, parents, and other campus and community colleagues with diminishing resources and time. This conference asks us all to reflect on how we stay vital and motivated in the face of these demands, and bring the vision we have for our work to fruition. Please consider presenting a poster that describes how you create and sustain vision and stay passionate and engaged in the important work that you do. Consider sharing your creativity and intentionality from various aspects of your counseling center work, such as clinical service, training, outreach, administration, honoring diversity, and campus collaboration.

Please submit your proposed poster to Salina Renninger, renni001@umn.edu no later than January 21, 2011. Poster acceptance is considered provisional pending confirmation of a paid registration from each presenter.

Submission Deadline: March 30, 2010 at 11:00 p.m. PST


"Expanding Our Horizons: The Next Decade in AAPI Psychology"

ASIAN AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION
2010 ANNUAL CONVENTION
August 11, 2010
San Diego, CA


The Asian American Psychological Association (AAPA) invites submissions of proposals for the AAPA 2010 Annual Convention to be held in San Diego, CA at the Peace and Justice Center (University of San Diego) on Wednesday, August 11th, 2010.

The convention theme this year is Expanding Our Horizons: The Next Decade in AAPI Psychology. We seek proposals that anticipate the future of AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) psychology and explore ways AAPI psychology may broaden its perspectives in terms of innovative scholarship, practice, and advocacy. Novel and progressive collaborations across disciplines within and outside the field of psychology are encouraged. Strong proposals will include a focus on the wide diversity that exists within AAPI individuals, families, and communities (e.g., ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious/spiritual affiliation, ability status, etc.).

Proposals may address, but are not limited to, the following topics within AAPI psychology:
• Shifts in perspectives and paradigms necessary for AAPI psychology to be relevant over the next decade.
• Innovations in collaboration, community-building, and participatory action with AAPI families and communities.
• Critical issues of advocacy, social justice, and activism in AAPI advocacy.
• The importance of working across disciplines both within (e.g., developmental psychology, social psychology, behavior genetics, neuroscience, industrial psychology, etc.) and outside of AAPI psychology (e.g., public health, women's studies, sociology).
• Innovations in research methods with AAPI individuals, families, and communities from diverse backgrounds.



Who May Submit


AAPA members at all levels of training (professional, graduate level, and undergraduate level), including non-psychologists interested in psychological issues affecting AAPIs are encouraged to submit proposals. Undergraduate proposals are encouraged. Non-AAPA members at all levels may also submit proposals. We particularly encourage submissions from those interested in AAPI psychology who have not previously participated in AAPA conventions.

To underscore the convention's theme on interdisciplinary collaborations, we also encourage submissions from non-psychologists, including members of related mental health professions (e.g. nursing, social work, education) as well as members of other professions and fields that are not primarily psychological in nature (i.e., sociologists, anthropologists, journalists, clergy, artists, writers). Because strengthening diverse families and communities are of particular importance for psychologists of color, we strongly encourage submissions from members of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi), Society of Indian Psychologists (SIP), or the National Latina/o Psychological Association (NLPA).

• Deadline for all submissions is March 30, 2010 at 11:00 p.m. PST
• Submit presentations at: http://www.aapaonline.org/conventions/conventions.shtml
• All presenters are required to officially register for the convention


Types of Submissions


Interactive Sessions (60 minutes) provide an environment for focused discussions and interactions. In a typical session, facilitators introduce the topic and set up a context for subsequent discussions and interactions among participants. Please contact Richard Shin at rqshin@syr.edu with any questions about submitting interactive session proposals.

Symposia (60 minutes) provide forums for multiple presentations and discussions around a common theme. A typical symposium will include 3 or 4 presentations. An invited expert discussant may provide feedback. Please contact Richard Shin at rqshin@syr.edu with any questions about submitting symposia proposals.

You may indicate on the proposal if you would like to have your interactive session or symposia proposal considered for a poster presentation in the event that it is not selected for an interactive session or a symposium presentation. Do not submit a separate poster proposal for a session that you would also like to be considered as a poster. Instead, clearly indicate on the cover sheet under "A: Type of Program" that you would like your session proposal to also be considered for a poster presentation.

No individual paper proposals for oral presentations are accepted. Single research papers should be submitted as posters.

Poster Sessions (60 minutes) provide a forum for conceptual and/or empirical reports to be presented in the form of a poster. In a poster session, multiple posters are displayed to disseminate information and elicit interactions with participants. Please contact Kimberly Langrehr at klangrehr@gmail.com with any questions about submitting poster proposals.

2nd Annual International Conference on "ENGAGING THE OTHER:" The Power of Compassion

An international, multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary conference examining concepts of "The OTHER" from a universal, cross-cultural perspective to promote wider public dialogue about concepts of "Us and Them"

October 25-28, 2007 Dearborn, Michigan USA
Sponsored by Common Bond Institute
Co-sponsored by HARMONY Institute, the International Humanistic Psychology Association, and The National Resource Center for The healing of Racism

Supported by a growing international list of over 85 organizations and universities
www.cbiworld.org for full details

~ Registration is Open To The Public ~

We Invite You To:
Join an extraordinary international pool of over 45 leading presenters to address the roots of negative stereotypes and prejudice, and how to move past artificial barriers of misunderstanding and distrust to cultivate our capacity for appreciation of diversity, reconciliation, and peace.

PURPOSE OF THE CONFERENCE IS TO:

> Raise the level, depth, and breadth of public dialogue and awareness on core issues. Explore dimensions and dynamics of "The OTHER" on both individual and group levels, and consider how enemy identity is formed, perpetuated, and manipulated, including fear-based belief systems, negative stereotypes, projection, prejudice, and scapegoating. Concepts are explored through psychological (intra-personal and inter-personal), sociological, cultural, anthropological, historical, philosophical, spiritual, and ecological perspectives.

> Identify and compile fundamental questions, dilemmas, and implications for further deep inquiry and examination, and to recognize and challenge embedded negative belief systems that promote dehumanizing, adversarial perceptions of the "The Other."

> Tap our shared wisdom and compassion as a community - from the local to the global - in developing practical applications. Participants are encouraged to develop and share practical recommendations and strategies for applying results to the current state of local and world relationships to promote increased understanding, sensitivity, and compassion as a means of countering and neutralizing hostility, particularly inter-group hostility.

FORMAT AND CONTENT:

A 3 1/2 DAY CONFERENCE PROGRAM OF:
- Keynote Speakers, - Plenary Topical Panels with leading visionaries, - Concurrent Break-out sessions of workshops, lectures, and roundtables to engage concepts and explore practical applications, - Daily Facilitated Dialogue Groups, - E-conference links to universities and institutes in the US and various countries to expand an inclusive global dialogue, - Media Exhibits and Events, - Evening Performances, Cultural programs, and Community activities, - Rich Networking opportunities, - Intentional Community.

Hi all

Dr. Linda Subich and I are pleased to announce that the Collaborative Program in Counseling Psychology at the University of Akron is hosting the 2007 Great Lakes Conference!

This year, with our theme "Counseling Psychology: State of the Art and Science", we highlight the cutting edge of counseling psychology science, practice, and training, as well as the benefits to be found in collaboration. For example, (and as specified in more detail on the attached Call for Programs page) we will be giving priority to symposia proposals that involve persons from more than one Great Lakes institution, and that comprehensively cover the cutting edge of science, practice, and training aspects within a particular domain of interest in counseling psychology (e.g., vocational psychology). Of course, as always, we welcome student presentations in all venues!

Please join us for this special 20th annual Great Lakes conference on March 30 - 31, 2007! Details on registration, accomodations, and the conference schedule will soon be available from our conference website; we are finalizing two potential pre-conference workshops prior to posting our pages to the web. Please feel free to contact the conference coordinators, Drs. Loreto Prieto (lprieto@uakron.edu) and Linda Subich (subich@uakron.edu), for answers to any and all conference related questions.

Call for Papers
Disability and Identity in the 21st Century

In recent years, the "minority model" that shaped advances in disability rights at the end of the twentieth century has come under scrutiny both for its failure to acknowledge the full variety of lived experiences and for the backlash this model engendered. Activists and theorists have begun to posit disability as a transient and situational phenomenon, one whose meaning and impact are ever in flux, shaped by stigma, economic access, perceptions of pain and its management, medications, access to support services, a sense of community and shared experiences with others, etc. New scholarship invites more nuanced consideration and new interpretations of the contexts--biomedical, educational, professional, humanistic, social, cultural--in which these identities are expressed and experienced. Proposals in any area of specialization and pertaining to any area of the world are welcome.

This symposium will bring together scholars working in disability studies for a weekend of shared research, community, and dynamic interdisciplinary discussion.

The Annual Big Ten Counseling Center Conference "Nurturing Vitality, Realizing Vision"


When: February 9th to 11th, 2011
Where: University Radisson Hotel, Minneapolis, MN

CALL FOR POSTERS
DEADLINE: JANUARY 21, 2011

The University of Minnesota's Counseling and Consulting Services (UCCS) is pleased to announce the Call for Posters for the annual Big Ten Counseling Center Conference. This year's conference asks participants to consider what they do to sustain vision, vitality, and passion in the face of limited resources and increasing student demand. Our shared reality is one of being asked to do more with less: more service to students, faculty, administrators, parents, and other campus and community colleagues with diminishing resources and time. This conference asks us all to reflect on how we stay vital and motivated in the face of these demands, and bring the vision we have for our work to fruition. Please consider presenting a poster that describes how you create and sustain vision and stay passionate and engaged in the important work that you do. Consider sharing your creativity and intentionality from various aspects of your counseling center work, such as clinical service, training, outreach, administration, honoring diversity, and campus collaboration.

Please submit your proposed poster to Salina Renninger, renni001@umn.edu no later than January 21, 2011. Poster acceptance is considered provisional pending confirmation of a paid registration from each presenter.

INTERACTIVE SESSIONS * SYMPOSIA * POSTER SESSIONS

Submission Deadline: March 30, 2010 at 11:00 p.m. PST


"Expanding Our Horizons: The Next Decade in AAPI Psychology"

ASIAN AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION
2010 ANNUAL CONVENTION
August 11, 2010
San Diego, CA


The Asian American Psychological Association (AAPA) invites submissions of proposals for the AAPA 2010 Annual Convention to be held in San Diego, CA at the Peace and Justice Center (University of San Diego) on Wednesday, August 11th, 2010.

The convention theme this year is Expanding Our Horizons: The Next Decade in AAPI Psychology. We seek proposals that anticipate the future of AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) psychology and explore ways AAPI psychology may broaden its perspectives in terms of innovative scholarship, practice, and advocacy. Novel and progressive collaborations across disciplines within and outside the field of psychology are encouraged. Strong proposals will include a focus on the wide diversity that exists within AAPI individuals, families, and communities (e.g., ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious/spiritual affiliation, ability status, etc.).

Proposals may address, but are not limited to, the following topics within AAPI psychology:
• Shifts in perspectives and paradigms necessary for AAPI psychology to be relevant over the next decade.
• Innovations in collaboration, community-building, and participatory action with AAPI families and communities.
• Critical issues of advocacy, social justice, and activism in AAPI advocacy.
• The importance of working across disciplines both within (e.g., developmental psychology, social psychology, behavior genetics, neuroscience, industrial psychology, etc.) and outside of AAPI psychology (e.g., public health, women's studies, sociology).
• Innovations in research methods with AAPI individuals, families, and communities from diverse backgrounds.



Who May Submit


AAPA members at all levels of training (professional, graduate level, and undergraduate level), including non-psychologists interested in psychological issues affecting AAPIs are encouraged to submit proposals. Undergraduate proposals are encouraged. Non-AAPA members at all levels may also submit proposals. We particularly encourage submissions from those interested in AAPI psychology who have not previously participated in AAPA conventions.

To underscore the convention's theme on interdisciplinary collaborations, we also encourage submissions from non-psychologists, including members of related mental health professions (e.g. nursing, social work, education) as well as members of other professions and fields that are not primarily psychological in nature (i.e., sociologists, anthropologists, journalists, clergy, artists, writers). Because strengthening diverse families and communities are of particular importance for psychologists of color, we strongly encourage submissions from members of the Association of Black Psychologists (ABPsi), Society of Indian Psychologists (SIP), or the National Latina/o Psychological Association (NLPA).

• Deadline for all submissions is March 30, 2010 at 11:00 p.m. PST
• Submit presentations at: http://www.aapaonline.org/conventions/conventions.shtml
• All presenters are required to officially register for the convention


Types of Submissions


Interactive Sessions (60 minutes) provide an environment for focused discussions and interactions. In a typical session, facilitators introduce the topic and set up a context for subsequent discussions and interactions among participants. Please contact Richard Shin at rqshin@syr.edu with any questions about submitting interactive session proposals.

Symposia (60 minutes) provide forums for multiple presentations and discussions around a common theme. A typical symposium will include 3 or 4 presentations. An invited expert discussant may provide feedback. Please contact Richard Shin at rqshin@syr.edu with any questions about submitting symposia proposals.

You may indicate on the proposal if you would like to have your interactive session or symposia proposal considered for a poster presentation in the event that it is not selected for an interactive session or a symposium presentation. Do not submit a separate poster proposal for a session that you would also like to be considered as a poster. Instead, clearly indicate on the cover sheet under "A: Type of Program" that you would like your session proposal to also be considered for a poster presentation.

No individual paper proposals for oral presentations are accepted. Single research papers should be submitted as posters.

Poster Sessions (60 minutes) provide a forum for conceptual and/or empirical reports to be presented in the form of a poster. In a poster session, multiple posters are displayed to disseminate information and elicit interactions with participants. Please contact Kimberly Langrehr at klangrehr@gmail.com with any questions about submitting poster proposals.

We Invite You To:
Join an extraordinary international pool of over 45 leading presenters to address the roots of negative stereotypes and prejudice, and how to move past artificial barriers of misunderstanding and distrust to cultivate our capacity for appreciation of diversity, reconciliation, and peace.

PURPOSE OF THE CONFERENCE IS TO:

Concepts are explored through psychological (intra-personal and inter-personal), sociological, cultural, anthropological, historical, philosophical, spiritual, and ecological perspectives.

> Identify and compile fundamental questions, dilemmas, and implications for further deep inquiry and examination, and to recognize and challenge embedded negative belief systems that promote dehumanizing, adversarial perceptions of the "The Other."

> Tap our shared wisdom and compassion as a community - from the local to the global - in developing practical applications. Participants are encouraged to develop and share practical recommendations and strategies for applying results to the current state of local and world relationships to promote increased understanding, sensitivity, and compassion as a means of countering and neutralizing hostility, particularly inter-group hostility.

A 3 1/2 DAY CONFERENCE PROGRAM OF:
- Keynote Speakers, - Plenary Topical Panels with leading visionaries, - Concurrent Break-out sessions of workshops, lectures, and roundtables to engage concepts and explore practical applications, - Daily Facilitated Dialogue Groups, - E-conference links to universities and institutes in the US and various countries to expand an inclusive global dialogue, - Media Exhibits and Events, - Evening Performances, Cultural programs, and Community activities, - Rich Networking opportunities, - Intentional Community.

Of course, as always, we welcome student presentations in all venues!

Please join us for this special 20th annual Great Lakes conference on March 30 - 31, 2007!
