Register now: ACM Engage Immigration Conference, June 14 - 15
With funding made available through a FaCE project entitled Sharing Expertise in Community-Based Learning & Research Addressing Immigration, faculty from various ACM colleges are hosting an Engage Immigration conference in Northfield, MN on June 14-15, 2018. During the two-day conference, ACM faculty and staff will gather for an interdisciplinary network-building opportunity focused on sharing best practices in community based-learning, scholarship and engagement with immigrants and immigration-contexts. Conference sessions will include:
Plenary address from an accomplished public scholar in immigration studies
Hands-on workshops to share information on ethical concerns, questions and best practices; course design; public data sets (quantitative and qualitative); digital scholarship; and public history outreach
Lightning-round talks (2-3 minutes) from all conference participants introducing their own research & projects, to facilitate networking
Collaboration exploration and planning sessions focused on specific opportunities (e.g., grants, journal CFPs and conferences)
If you're interested, you can register here. The FaCE grant will cover housing and lodging expenses for the first 30 registrants. Some travel scholarships are also available under the grant award. (Alternatively, apply to CoFR by April 13 to be considered for travel funding.)
If you have any questions about these or other aspects of the conference, please contact Katherine Tegtmeyer Pak, Associate Professor at St. Olaf College, at email@example.com.
