Tomorrow,  I'm off to attend and present at the First Annual Critical Mixed Race Studies Conference at DePaul University in Chicago:
The CMRS conference brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines nationwide. Recognizing that the diverse disciplines that have nurtured Mixed Race Studies have reached a watershed moment, the 2010 CMRS conference is devoted to the general theme “Emerging Paradigms in Critical Mixed Race Studies.”
Critical Mixed Race Studies (CMRS) is the transracial, transdisciplinary, and transnational critical analysis of the institutionalization of social, cultural, and political orders based on dominant conceptions of race. CMRS emphasizes the mutability of race and the porosity of racial boundaries in order to critique processes of racialization and social stratification based on race. CMRS addresses local and global systemic injustices rooted in systems of racialization.
Many of the events will be podcasted and selected audio will be published on ITunes under the DePaul University conference channel.

(Props and many thanks to Laura Kina, Camilla Fojas and Wei Ming Dariotis for making this conference a reality!!)
