Call for Presentations
The 2022 Keeping Our Faculty of Color Symposium is now accepting proposals for presentation abstracts.
- Submissions due: January 14, 2022
- Acceptances announced: January 31, 2022
KOF 2022 will offer a variety of presentation formats, including paper presentations (15-20 minutes), posters, and panels (75 minutes).
Abstracts for the following types of Symposium presentations are submitted for review:
Paper Presentations (Individual)
These are individual paper presentations on topics, including research and program development, related to the Symposium theme of “Navigating Two Pandemics.” Each presentation will run from 15-20 minutes. It is possible that upon review, individual submissions may be grouped together by Symposium organizers to form panels consisting of 3-4 individual papers that address common themes whose organization can benefit Symposium participants. Abstracts of up to 1000 words should include the presentation title and how the presentation relates to the Symposium theme and to the issues outlined--recruitment, advancement, and retention of Indigenous faculty and faculty of color. Additionally, questions, findings, and strategies based on research and/or program development should be briefly discussed.
Panel Presentations (Group)
Panels provide a space for sharing and exchange between presenters who coordinate their submission and who are working on a common or complementary set of problems through research and/or programming. These are 75-minute sessions that will include a group of 3 or more presenters. We encourage panel submissions representing multiple institutions and/or disciplines. The number of panel presentation sessions is limited. Abstracts of up to 1000 words describing the group concept will include the panel title and how the panel relates to the Symposium theme and to the issues outlined--recruitment, advancement, and retention of Indigenous faculty and faculty of color. Brief descriptions (150-200 words) of the individual presentations included must also be provided.
Poster Presentations (Individual)
Posters feature visual representations of presenter work and provide opportunities for Symposium participants to engage informally with the work. Posters will be featured on the virtual platform for participants to access throughout the Symposium. Abstracts of up to 500 words describing the poster and its goals will be reviewed.
Authors must submit an electronic copy of their 2-page proposal. See the KOF submission template for formatting guidelines.
Proposals should include:
- The overall focus of the presentation/poster/panel
- The major issues to be addressed
- Significance of the contributions
- Brief description of the presentation
- For Panels – How the collective presentations/voices contribute toward the major issues
We encourage panel submissions representing multiple institutions and/or disciplines.
