Conference Theme: Justice and Equity: Challenging Hate and Inspiring Hope
Call for Proposals Date: February 1, 2021
Conference Date: November 4-6, 2021
Location: Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA, USA
In this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, political divisiveness, racial inequity, and climate injustice, the importance of understanding how the processes of dehumanization and othering harm communities and the world in which we live is as critical as ever.
As we move towards the end of 2020 and begin the new calendar year, the Gonzaga Institute for Hate Studies invites you to consider opportunities to share your work to counter hate and promote hope and submit a proposal to present at the Sixth International Conference on Hate Studies. The multidisciplinary field of hate studies brings us together for new understandings to address hate in any one or more of its manifestations (e.g. racism, Anti-Semitism, homophobia, religious intolerance, ethnoviolence, anti-immigration animus, ableism, etc.). Proposals are welcome from all academic fields.
The International Conference on Hate Studies is one of the leading interdisciplinary academic forums on hate, related social problems, and ways to create socially just and inclusive communities. The lessons learned and plans which emerge will help educators, researchers, advocates, and others better analyze and combat hatred in its various manifestations to lead to communities being committed to peace, human rights, and justice.
