Abstracts for the 2018 Eastern Sociological Society annual meeting



Conference Theme:  As Time Goes By: Social and Institutional Change



The ESS Committee on the Status of Minorities welcomes submissions for a Paper Session titled Navigating Race and Racism on Campus.





We welcome paper submissions based on empirical research and/or experiential knowledge (i.e., scholarly personal narrative) that address the challenges and complexities of navigating race and racism on campus.  Of particular interest are papers that focus on faculty and student experiences managing racial microaggressions; challenges to confronting racial discrimination; teaching and learning, Post-Charlottesville; community organizing on campus (#BLM, DACA); and building community and alliances on racially divisive campuses.  We envision this paper session providing people with problem-solving resources and specific strategies for navigating racism on campus, and thus encourage authors to provide such insight in their presentations.



This session is organized by Melinda A. Mills and Dawn W. Dow, members of the ESS Status of Minorities Committee. Presenters must submit their abstracts through the ESS submission system by Oct 15, 2017.  

-In the “Submission Details” window, select “Paper” for “Type of Submission.”
