39th Annual National Conference
April 7-9, 2011
Claremont Graduate University
Claremont, California


The National Association for Ethnic Studies invites
abstracts/proposals or papers, panels, workshops, or media productions
from people in all disciplines and interdisciplinary areas of the
arts, business, social sciences, humanities, science and education on
current manifestations of racism and ethnic bias in the US, where
ethnic studies as a discipline is under siege in schools and
universities. What is the national discourse on race? How have race
and ethnicity been characterized in popular media and education, as
well as local and national politics? How is the treatment of racism
exemplified by the emphasis on undocumented immigrants from Mexico and
Central America? How are claims of nationalism and reverse racism
being used against ethnic studies? How has post-racial ideology become
part of our thinking, education, and legislation?

The conference will create a lively forum for the discussion of issues
related to the conference theme, including, but not limited to the
following: AB 1070, HB 2281 and other racialized legislative attacks
on immigrants and communities of color; the legacy of the Civil War,
Plessy v. Ferguson, and Brown v. Board of Education; racism?s
intersections with gender and sexuality; Obama nation; model
minorities; assimilation; sovereignty rights; profiling; curricula in
schools; managing and marketing diversity; affirmative action;
mixed-race identity; resistance to post-racialism; patriotism,
nationalism and xenophobia; statelessness; colorblind casting;
whiteness studies; hate groups; the new genetics; race and sports;
color blind medicine and public health; social welfare policy; dual
citizenship; ethnomusicology; representations of colorblind racism in
literature and visual art; performing race.

Two-hundred-fifty-word abstracts/proposals should be submitted by
December 15, 2010, which relate to any aspect of the conference theme,
with the participant?s institutional affiliation and mailing address,
telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address. The abstract/proposal

are welcome to chair other panels but may only present one paper.
