Issues of Diversity: Voices from the Field


Issues of Diversity: Voices from the Field is a working paper series designed to showcase research on topics related to diversity, social equity, and inclusion that is being conducted by IUP faculty and students.  

The Issues of Diversity series was launched in March 2012 and runs annually each spring semester, calling for proposals every October. The series is free and open to the public. All are invited to bring a lunch and join the conversation!

Issues of Diversity is Currently Seeking Presenters

The Frederick Douglass Institute for Intercultural Research is currently seeking presenters for year three of its Issues of Diversity: Voices from the Field working papers series.   

The primary goal of Issues of Diversity is to provide an informal and supportive setting for participants to receive critical feedback from others who share their scholarly and academic interests in diversity, social equity, and inclusion. Participants can present their work at a variety of stages of completion—from inception and early findings to fairly polished pieces. Those preparing for presentation, publication, and grant writing opportunities within the university and beyond are especially encouraged to participate. Presenters can come from any discipline or field represented at IUP. 

Panels will be scheduled throughout spring 2015.

A secondary goal of the series is to foster community and networking opportunities for those working in areas related to social justice, equity and inclusion. Former presenters are invited to continue their affiliation with the Issues of Diversity series.

E-mail or by December 12 to indicate your interest or to nominate someone else for this opportunity. Please feel free to share this information with others who may be interested.
