Request for Session Proposals
Hindsight Conference 2019 is themed Erasure, Remembrance, and Healing. 2019 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, the 100th Anniversary of the 1919 "Red Summer,” and 400 years since enslaved Africans first landed on occupied Powhatan territory, historically renamed Jamestown in Virginia. There are many other anniversaries in 2019, but we acknowledge that the history of time and place remembered are imperfect. This year’s conference theme reflects on the erasure of history, collective amnesia, the movement of remembrance, and its power to heal.
The day-long event will focus on diversity and social equity not solely as a topic at a conference, but as a lens through which all planning and community development should be implemented.
We invite you and the general public to submit proposals for innovative sessions (panels, workshops, skill-share, performance, exhibition) that focuses on the theme and ensures a diversity of panelists and speakers.
Proposals are due August 31, 2019 by 5 PM EST and proposal teams will be notified of selection by September 27, 2019.
