Black and Latino Males Conference 2008

8th Annual Black and Latino Male Conference
“The Fire This Time: Politics, Economics and Identity”
November 14-16, 2008


Hosted by Bucknell University

Teams of students, faculty and administrators from CHAS schools are invited to register for this conference, which will address the work of public service and the connections to how gender and race are formulated today.  Look forward to a weekend of discussion, skill-building, networking, and social activities.  

The agenda follows.  If your campus team includes female students, please note that general sessions are open to all, however, male and female tracks have been designed for Conversation Circles that include student participants.  We hope this format will allow for sessions that provide more focused forums whereby open and frank discussions on sensitive issues can take place in a safe environment.

The invited speakers include:

Dr. James Peterson in the Department of English at Bucknell University

Trent Hargrove, Pennsylvania Chief Diversity Officer and Bucknell alumnus

Dr. Shaun Harper, in the department of Higher Education Management, Graduate School of Education at Penn State

Dr. Cary Fraser, in the Department of African and African-American Studies at Penn State University
