As posted here Feb 12/08, the US-based National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) is holding its 18th annual conference Nov 12-16/08 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The conference theme is Beyond Celebrating Diversity: reActivating the Equity and Social Justice Roots of Multicultural Education.
NAME is now seeking conference proposal reviewers. From the proposal review Chair, Christine Clark, as posted today to the NAME listserv:
“The review timeframe will be – with some flexibility on either end – that proposals will be sent to you by mid to late May and would need to be completed and returned by early to mid June. You do not need to be a NAME member to be a reviewer.
“Please let me know ASAP if you are willing to be a proposal reviewer this year. In your reply, please send me all of your contact information (name,professional affiliation, mailing address, phones, faxes, e-mails) so that we can update the database. If nothing about your contact information has changed in the last year please indicate that in your reply.
“Also, please indicate your interests and/or expertise with respect to proposal review topic areas – for example, gender equity, achievement gap, P-12, disability access, gay rights, and so forth”.
