The Justice & Multiculturalism in the 21st Century Project in the School of Criminal Justice at the University at Albany is seeking abstract submissions for its upcoming Spring Symposium -- Explorations in Justice: Gender, Sexuality and Violence.
The Justice & Multiculturalism in the 21st Century Project engages scholars, practitioners, and community members in an exploration of the intersections of social justice and criminal justice in a diverse society. The specific objective of the Spring Symposium is to develop a better understanding of intersections of justice with gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and/or gender as they pertain to violence and violent victimization.
Scholars, practitioners, and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts for empirical papers in these areas. Given the limited number of panels, abstracts will be reviewed by a selection committee, and selected authors invited to present their work at the Symposium. The selection committee will look for high-quality papers that make original contributions to the field.
