Submissions welcome for the National Collegiate Dialogue on Race Relations

This post was submitted by Janice Ellis of USAonRace.com, an NCDD organizational member. Please send all articles, position statements, well-framed questions, papers, or video lectures to Janice at jellis@usaonrace.com.

On Monday, September 16, 2013, USAonRace.com will continue the National Collegiate Dialogue on Race Relations (NCDRR). This will be our fourth consecutive year of hosting the dialogue on race relations, which is very much needed. There are racially- motivated incidents occurring on a daily basis across America and around the world.

NCDRR provides an excellent opportunity for students and professors to actively participate in a healthy and meaningful exchange of ideas about this important issue that continues to pose major challenges in contemporary society.

I am inviting fellow NCDD members to submit a paper, position statement, or a previously published article for use as a discussion topic in the “Conversation Of The Week,” or “Issue Of The Week.”

The submissions can be in the form of a well-framed position statement, research paper or article, thought-provoking question, or video lecture.

Suggested areas for submissions for the 2013 session include:

  • President Barack Obama – What has been the impact on race relations?
  • Education – achievement gap/disparities, opportunities, trends across racial/ethnic groups
  • Sociology – stereotypes and social norms, intergenerational issues regarding perceptions about race and ethnicity
  • Work Place – how race plays in job placement, career growth, wealth accumulation, etc.
  • Community – physical, cultural, traditional lines of demarcation, housing, home ownership
  • Family Values – the ever changing roles, and traditions, as well as the short-term/long-term impact
  • Politics – the potential influence of the ‘Changing Face of America”; by 2050, America will be a nation of minorities. What are the implications?

We will be most pleased to receive your submissions. You can visit the National Collegiate Dialogue at
www.usaonrace.com/department/national-collegiate-dialogue to review previous submissions.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at jellis@usaonrace.com or call me at 877-931-2201.
