As part of the Latinx Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration at University of Pittsburgh, the Center for Latin American Studies will be hosting the 2021 Latinx Connect Conference: Elevating LatinX Identities & Contemporary Issues and have issued the following call for proposals.

CALL for Proposals

The Latinx Connect virtual conference (October 14-16) aims to move us beyond “celebrating” Latinxs, instead, calling for empowerment and justice for the Latinx community, which faces numerous disparities in U.S. society, particularly those at the intersections of Latinx identity (e.g., Afro-Latinxs, Indigenous Latinxs, queer and Trans* Latinxs, undocumented Latinxs).

The 3-day virtual conference, free and open to all, will bring together students, educators, community leaders, political advocates, and others to dialogue about Latinx identities, cultures, and contemporary issues. Participants will discuss what it means to be Latinx/a/o/e/Hispanic in relation to intersectional identities, education, immigration, public health, arts & culture, history, and other topical areas.

Call For Proposals: The deadline to submit virtual session proposals is Friday, August 27, 2021 https://www.diversity.pitt.edu/…/2021-latinx-connect…https://www.facebook.com/PittDiversity
