AU Outreach and TAWLA Symposium
Call for Presentation Proposals
February 15-17, 2016
Auburn University Hotel and Dixon Conference Center
The 2016 Outreach Scholarship Symposium hosted in partnership with the Tuskegee Auburn Women’s Leadership Alliance calls for 15 minute paper presentations or 30 minute poster presentations in one of two tracks: “The Scholarship of Engagement” or “Voices from the Margins.” Proposals for papers and posters will be accepted from faculty, students, community professionals, collaborative teams, and partnering scholars.
Proposals must be submitted via the e-form by November 19, 2015. All accepted presenters must register for the symposium by January 15, 2016. There is no cost to register for the symposium. Student presenters must name a faculty sponsor on the proposal e-form.
Track One: The Scholarship of Engagement
Track one is for those interested in proposing papers or posters related to the scholarship of engagement, outreach, extension, community engaged research and scholarship, and pedagogy related to community and civically engaged teaching. Papers or posters should present Engaged Scholarship, a distinctive approach to university–community partnerships founded upon mutual respect and an understanding that a collaborative partnership can achieve sustainable and long lasting impacts for the benefit of society.
For more information on this track, contact Dr. Chippewa Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org
Track Two: Voices from the Margins
Track two is for those interested in proposing narrative papers that explore voices from the margins of academe, particularly the situation of women, both past and present, within higher education and the professions. From the margins, these narratives will address issues such as fostering multicultural competence, combatting racism and sexism, and mentoring the next generation. Those presenting in Track Two will be given the opportunity to revise the presentation and submit it for publication consideration in our volume Outside In.
For more information on this track, contact Dr. Barbara A. Baker at email@example.com
