North Dakota Study Group 2015
Date: Feb 12-15, 2015
Location: Edinburg and surrounding communities, TX
Since 2012 NDSG has been committed to place-based learning for our own annual meeting. Having spent two years in Detroit, we are moving to South Texas to immerse ourselves in the complex interplay of language, culture, policy and power in education. Exploring bilingual, bicultural initiatives in South Texas through an historical, intergenerational narrative, we will use the experience to move from micro to macro, South Texas to Detroit to greater USA and perhaps into international connections.
2015 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA)
Dates: April 16-20
Location: Chicago, IL
The 2015 Annual Meeting theme is intended to focus our attention on justice—locally as well as globally—in a spirit of mutually respectful collaborative engagement with our disciplines and modes of inquiry in the context of the world around us. The aim is to make room for democratized knowledge and knowledge production in which the experiences of all people are shaped by principles and practices of justice. When we do so, our scholarly interests can align more closely with the interests of justice for those who have been and are educationally marginalized, dispossessed, and excluded.
The 28th National Conference on Race & Ethnicity in American Higher Education (NCORE 2015)
Host: The National Conference on Race & Ethnicity in American Higher Education
Date: May 26-30, 2015
Location: Washington DC
While NCORE 2015 is still in the process of calling for submissions from presenters, the key objects of the conference are to discuss efforts to create inclusive higher education environments, programs, and curriculum; improve campus racial and ethnic relations; and/or expand opportunities for educational access and success by culturally diverse, traditionally underrepresented populations. And to provide important insights, points-of-view, skills, tools, and strategies that stress solutions, implementation, and practical applications to back up these critical conversations.

National Petition: Demand for Full Review of El Paso Detention Center
“I write to ask for an immediate review of the El Paso Detention Center. Recently, in light of the public cases of the Dream 30 who were detained there, it has come to my attention that a great number of immigrants are being unjustly held in the El Paso Detention Center despite having already passed their credible fear interview.” SIGN NOW!
