Call for Papers

The conference theme – Latin@s in the Midwest: Past, Present, and Future -- recognizes the rich historical and growing presence of Latin@s in this region. Our goal is to promote awareness and further develop knowledge and analysis of historic, current, and future developments that impact the Latin@ population. Of particular interest is the need to strategize for collective empowerment and leadership of Latin@s in the Midwest and to support collaboration between community leaders and scholars. Also, the conference would like to acknowledge the significant contributions from our Midwest Latin@ and Chicana@ Studies Centers, Departments, and Programs and we particularly welcome their presence and participation. NOTE: We also strongly encourage development of proposals to host the 2015 NACCS Midwest Foco Conference for presentation at our business meeting to be held on Saturday.  See flyer for details.
