Call for Workshop Proposals: PHENND Conference: Immigration & Refugee Resettlement – Jan 13

Posted by PHENND on November 1, 2022

We are looking for individuals who plan on attending the “PHENND CONFERENCE: Immigration & Refugee Resettlement,” to be held Friday, March 24, 2023, to design and lead paper presentations and workshops. This gathering will be attended by 80-100 students, campus staff, faculty, and community organization staff active in community service, service-learning, and campus-community partnership work. While primarily targeting individuals who are part of the 25+ colleges and universities involved in the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development (PHENND), this event is also open nationally to practitioners of campus-community partnership.

Over the course of one day, between 3 and 5 elective choices will be offered during each of three sessions. Therefore, we are looking for a total of roughly 10-15 workshops and/or paper presentations.

PROPOSAL DEADLINE: FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 2023
LOCATION: Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA (tentatively confirmed pending release of classrooms for Spring Semester)
CONFERENCE DATE: Friday, March, 24, 2023

Details about the conference will be forthcoming but our keynote speaker is already confirmed!  We are pleased to announce Diya Abdo, founder of Every Campus A Refuge. She is also the Lincoln Financial Professor of English in the Department of English and Creative Writing at Guilford College. Her book, American Refuge: True Stories of the Refugee Experience, was just published in September.
