(en) US, Finding Our Roots: Anarchist Organizing In the Midwest - 2nd Annual - CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Date Tue, 18 Dec 2007 12:29:14 +0200

We are seeking workshop proposals for the second annual Finding Our Roots
conference, to be held in Chicago April 25-27, 2008. This year's conference
topic is Anarchist Organizing in the Midwest. Workshops should address any
aspect of the ways in which anarchists do, can, or should organize in our
region. Central questions to consider when formulating workshop ideas: --- How
do we organize ourselves as anarchists? --- How can we organize across diverse
communities and political tendencies? --- What does it mean to organize locally
as communities, as cities, as a region? --- We strongly encourage proposals
covering intersections between anarchism and other communities of resistance.
Potential topics include Queer resistance, anti-racist organizing,
labor/workplace organizing, organizing by and with communities of Color,
neighborhood organizing, gender equality, transportation rights, environmental
justice, health care, housing and household-based organizing,
anti-military/anti-recruitment campaigns, prison abolition and prisoner support,
anti-hunger/food redistribution campaigns, organizing against sexual violence,
media activism, student organizing, and any other area in which Midwest
anarchists are organizing.

Proposals should be NO MORE THAN ONE PAGE and should include:

ƒ{ Workshop title
ƒ{ Your name and contact info (and those of workshop presenter(s) if this isn't
you ¡V though please make sure you have confirmed with all presenters BEFORE you
volunteer them)
ƒ{ Specific area(s) of organizing/activism covered (see above list)
ƒ{ Detailed workshop description, including an explanation of how your workshop
fits into the topic of Anarchist Organizing in the Midwest
ƒ{ Questions to be posed/answered in the workshop
ƒ{ Main workshop goals
ƒ{ Workshop format (Will it be an open discussion? Panel/roundtable? Lecture
followed by Q&A? **If workshop will involve a presentation followed by
discussion/Q&A, please consider how much time you will devote to each.)
ƒ{ Any special materials or equipment (ie, audiovisual) you will need
ƒ{ BRIEF reading list [optional]

Workshops are one hour and fifteen minutes (75 minutes) long. Workshops will be
scheduled in 90-minute blocks, which INCLUDES a 10-15 minute break between
workshops. We ask that presenters be diligent about staying within this time
frame. If you feel you need more time for your workshop, please explain why, and
we will consider allotting a longer slot.

Submit proposals to: chicagoanarchisttheory@riseup.net
Proposal deadline: March 1, 2008
