Research Justice: A Symposium Exploring Community Engaged Scholarship
The UC Berkeley Public Service Center, The American Cultures Center and The Oakland Data Center invite proposals for 'Research Justice' a symposium exploring community engaged scholarship which will take place on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at the University of California, Berkeley. The Symposium will host critical conversations which discuss how community engaged scholarship can re-shape the university, its' relationships to "the public", and contribute to shaping the relationship between the two in favor of movements, such as environmental justice, prison abolition, indigenous movements, the fight for K-12 education, and the arts in social justice.
Community members, faculty, and graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged to submit proposals that contribute to the exploration of innovative research partnerships (e.g., via approaches, models, principles) that advance social justice and community self-determination.
Proposals are due February 14, 2014

Call for Abstracts for American Water Resources Association's Special Summer Session
Special Session Title: Environmental Justice in Integrated Regional Water Management: Challenges and Lessons Learned
Special Session Description: The fields of Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) and environmental justice (EJ) are at a unique confluence, given the challenges that small, rural systems face in providing clean, affordable and reliable water. This awareness has led to an increased effort to develop regional drinking water solutions and involve historically marginalized stakeholder groups (e.g. rural areas, ethnic minorities etc.) in IRWM planning. This panel will discuss the challenges and lessons learned regarding how best to ensure that rural and environmental justice issues are adequately addressed in IRWM. This panel brings together leading experts in the academic, policy and IRWM spheres focused on disadvantaged communities and EJ.
Abstracts are due by February 17, 2014.
