By Lyn Uhl, Executive Editor of Communication

Last spring I announced our new series in Communication for Social Justice Activism co-edited by Pat Parker and Larry Frey. Now we are on to the exciting phase of receiving proposals and we encourage authors to come to us with their ideas.

During the National Communication Association conference in Dallas (November 16 – 19), Pat Parker, Larry Frey, and I will be leading a panel session—The Time is Right. The Time is Now—along with several of our wonderful advisory board members, Kevin Carragee, Katherine Grace Hendrix, and Omi Joni Jones.

During the session we plan to talk about why we created the series, the topics and books ideas we are looking for, and we will be delighted to hear about any specific proposal ideas that people want to open up for discussion.

In addition to encouraging proposal submissions, we also hope to use the panel to learn more about how people are teaching using social justice themes and how students are responding to these ideas and teaching techniques.

Please come and share your book ideas and classroom experiences!

Panel Session: The Time is Right. The Time is Now.  

Friday, November 17, 8:00-9:15 AM, Sheraton, City View 6 – 8th Floor
