Call for papers and organizers
Do progressives have an alternative for America?
Do Progressives have an alternative for America? How can Progressives create a different social agenda? What can Progressives do to bring about actual change? Perhaps the most important contribution Progressives can make to American social and political life at this time is to introduce and popularize a new vision of what America can be, as well as to present examples of specific programs that show how this vision might work. The RGC Conference organizers believe there is a need for something like a "Tea Party for Progressives," and they would like to hear your view.
Abstracts (250-300 words) should be sent by December 1, 2011, to Jean Belkhir at firstname.lastname@example.org. Presentations at the 2012 RGC Conference would be selected for publication in the Race, Gender & Class journal.
To submit a paper or a panel proposal (only electronically) and/or to volunteer to serve as an RGC conference organizer, please contact
