About the 2020 Virginia Dares nearly-carbon-neutral Conference Towards Making and Teaching Decolonizing Media Across the Disciplines:

Call for Presentations and Papers!

November 1-20, 2020

We, the conference organizers, seek to foster explorations and illuminations of the myriad resonances between 19th and 20th century myths about the European origins of American civilization and contemporary anti-feminist, anti-BIPOC discourses.

Ultimately, we hope this project fosters in its audiences and participants a sense of responsibility to the past, present, and future of all our relations.

We welcome international submissions!

Please note that for the duration of the conference, your filmed talk/presentation will be posted to the conference website, as well as to its YouTube account.

If presenters allow, these talks will become part of a permanent conference archive, made available to local educators and open to the public.

Abstracts are due by September 1, 2020. Participants will be informed if their submissions have been accepted by October 1, 2020.

Videos of the talks will be due by October 20. The online conference will take place from November 1~20, 2020.

Conference Entry Deadline: September 1, 2020
