"The Power of Representation in an Era of Invisibility"
Saturday, April 23, 2016
Teachers College Columbia University

The Black Student Network acknowledges the importance of a multi-dimensional and humane portrayal of people of color in all experiences of education and human development as well as the need for the reclamation of identity, narrative and representation of marginalized communities. The 7th Annual Diversity in Research and Practice Conference calls for research papers and multi-modal presentations that examine representation and the factors that perpetuate invisibility of people of color in all experiences of education and human development. We believe that collaboration and dialogue across disciplines and engaging various approaches of inquiry are essential to harnessing our capacity to be catalysts of change.

This year, the Diversity in Research and Practice Conference offers:

  • Roundtable Discussions: An opportunity for conference attendees to participate in discussion centered on a particular issue. A facilitator will provide a brief presentation of the subject in question and aid in guiding the discussion.

  • Poster Presentations: Participant's work will be presented on a visual display and participant will engage attendees about their work and answer questions.

  • Paper Presentations: Oral presentations of research papers, aided by PowerPoint, that may involve one or more presenters.

  • Multi-modal presentations: Presenters may propose work that examines and addresses the theme of the conference through mediums such as music, video, art, or spoken word.
