14th Latina/o/x Communities Conference: Building Bridges/Construyendo Puentes

2022 Theme: Intergenerational Communities

West Chester University

Call for Presentations


In 2022 the LCC is back to holding in-person events on Thursday, September 29th.  


Each year, our interdisciplinary conference provides a creative space to enhance the understanding of Latina/o/x  issues, contributions, and cultures. We pride ourselves in serving as a link between academia and local communities, institutions and organizations 


This year’s theme focuses on celebrating Intergenerational Communities, bringing forth the potential of diversity and intersectionalities present in our community, family or extra-familial relations between generations, preservation of traditions, intergenerational trauma, pedagogy and popular learning spaces, multiple forms of knowledge, intergenerational healing, collective activism, and preservation of traditions, among others. As such, we invite proposals that address these themes, in addition to other themes related to Latinx communities and identities. 


We invite students, faculty, professionals, practitioners, artists, and community members to submit proposals. We welcome individual or collective in one of these formats: 


20-minute academic presentations or posters
75-minute panels of up to 4 presenters
75-minute interactive workshops
Creative work
Alternative modalities

We welcome proposals from any academic discipline, grassroots and activist engagement, artistic work, and community membership at large. 


Proposals Due Date: June 30th, 2022
