10th Annual DiRP Conference
April 27, 2019
Theme: Afro-Futurism: Redefining and Reimagining Futures
"THERE ARE BLACK PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE." - Alisha B. Wormsley
The Black Student Network recognizes that the struggles of today are historically familiar, as the empowering voices of marginalized people continue to be under and misrepresented. Being able to reclaim lost perspectives, reintroduce indigenous methodologies, define ourselves, and imagine a future that does not yet exist is perhaps our strongest weapon against erasure and towards liberation. Therefore, it is vital that we disrupt the status quo and transcend boundaries to create a future for us and by us.
The 10th Annual Diversity in Research and Practice Conference calls for poster, paper, and multi-modal presentations that seek to expand the ways in which we think about marginalized populations in all experiences of human development. We believe that dialogue, collaboration across disciplines and engagement of various approaches of inquiry are essential to harnessing our capacity to be catalysts of change.
