Treinta y tres - Sustainability, Conservation, and Environmental Justice

The Center for Latino and Latin American Studies at Northern Illinois University annual conference.

The Center for Latino and Latin American Studies at Northern Illinois University invites you to submit proposals for its annual conference, “Treinta y tres,” to be held on Friday, November 19, 2021. This year’s theme is “Sustainability, Conservation, and Environmental Justice” in relation to both Latinx and Latin American experiences. We welcome proposals from faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students that engage approaches and methodologies from across the arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: sustainable food systems, energy studies, water, conservation of natural habitats, environmental racism, environmental discourse and ideologies, and environmental health issues.

The deadline to submit proposals (150-300 words) for papers, panels, performances, or workshops is September 15, 2021. Proposals should include a title, brief abstract, and contact information for each participant. Please also indicate if you prefer a virtual or in-person session. We will do our best to accommodate preferences, but flexibility on format will be appreciated. We are planning for a hybrid conference with both virtual and in-person activities, pending updates or changes to university Covid-19 guidelines. Email latinostudies@niu.edu with any questions or for more information.
