The Community Literacy Journal is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes both scholarly work that contributes to theories, methodologies, and research agendas and work by literacy workers, practitioners, creative writers, and community literacy program staff. We are especially committed to presenting work done in collaboration between academics and community members, organizers, activists, teachers, students, and artists.
We understand “community literacy” as including multiple domains for literacy work extending beyond mainstream educational and work institutions. It can be found in programs devoted to adult education, early childhood education, reading initiatives, or work with marginalized populations, but it can also be found in more informal, ad hoc projects, including creative writing, graffiti art, protest songwriting, and social media campaigns.
For us, literacy is defined as the realm where attention is paid not just to content or to knowledge but to the symbolic means by which it is represented and used. Thus, literacy makes reference not just to letters and to text but to other multimodal, technological, and embodied representations, as well. Community literacy is interdisciplinary and intersectional in nature, drawing from rhetoric and composition, communication, literacy studies, English studies, gender studies, race and ethnic studies, environmental studies, critical theory, linguistics, cultural studies, education, and more.

Innovative and Ethical Practices and Pedagogies in the Social Sciences: Geospatial Data, Validity, and Fairness
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 30: OPEN CALL FOR PAPERS- AND/OR PEDAGOGICAL RESOURCES
Innovative and Ethical Practices and Pedagogies in the Social Sciences: Geospatial Data, Validity, and Fairness
Virtual Workshop: January 18-19, 2024
NEWS: The conference will be hybrid! Please join us at the FIU MMC Campus if you are in Miami! :)
This conference will contribute to advancing knowledge on the complexity of ethical issues associated with the recent shifting nature of geospatial data (i.e., crowdsourced data generated by amateur mappers, continuous location data recorded by smartphones and smart city applications, publicly available open geospatial data by authoritative government agencies). Validity and fairness are increasingly challenging to manage and evaluate. For example, algorithms used to search, compile, generate, analyze, and visualize data designed by big tech companies concerned about their capital accumulation become increasingly opaque and disregard citizens’ interests. Our workshop contributes to the growing literature on critical data studies, data rights, data justice, data activism, Indigenous data sovereignty, and feminist data studies focused on unearthing and counterbalancing the uneven effects of unfair and invalid data practices that are ubiquitous with data accumulation in society.
Additionally, our conference contributes to reducing the disconnection between the rapid changes in geospatial technologies and geospatial data practices and the relatively slow development of corresponding pedagogical approaches. To advance theories and pedagogies in geospatial data science ethics, our conference answers critical GIScience scholars’ call to focus on interdisciplinarity. This workshop aims to generate an in-depth discussion on the challenges of academia’s siloed boundaries and corporations’ control in geospatial data science with an overt emphasis on ethical engagement and engaged citizenry.
The conference will bring together scholars in critical GIScience, geography, education, linguistics, humanities, social sciences, Indigenous studies, community groups, and NGOs. Specifically, the workshop focuses on pedagogical strategies to teach the ethical aspects of validity and fairness in geospatial data collection, analytics and analysis, and visualization in various fields related to GIScience. We seek contributions addressing pressing challenges in the context of constant and rapid technological advancements, such as balancing technological and technical learning with conceptual, ethical, valid, and fair knowledge production.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This workshop is funded by the National Science Foundation. Across 2 days, the workshop will chart innovative conceptual directions and pedagogical resources. The first day will include presentations from keynote speakers and a panel discussion. The organizing committee will then introduce the four workshop sessions for the next day. The second day will consist of four open forums where participants will share works in progress (in a short 10 min. presentation) and get feedback on draft papers and pedagogical resources. At the end of the day, we will regroup to share concluding remarks across the four workshops. We hope to have about 45 people in attendance.
The workshop will produce a rich collection of outputs. (1) We will host pedagogical material on our webpage in an open-access repository with an assigned DOI. (2) We will also record some of the talks and host the recordings with an assigned DOI on the webpage. (3) We will later compile papers in an edited collection such as a journal special issue or book.
We will have four workshop sessions on the following themes:
- Critical education, social justice theories, intersectional feminist approaches, and ethics in the classroom
- Community and citizen-engaged approaches to knowledge production
- Interdisciplinary approaches to rewiring geospatial technologies and data visualizations
- Indigenous geospatial data sovereignty, Indigenous methodologies, and Indigenous pedagogies
We welcome papers and pedagogical resources contributions at any stage of development.

Interior Design Symposium: Fostering Identity, Diversity, & Connectivity (Department of Interior Architecture)
The goal of this symposium is to explore important facets of the discipline of Interior Design (ID) by bringing together scholars and practitioners to advocate for professional identity, support cultural diversity through design, encourage global connectivity and foster interdisciplinary exchanges.
The symposium investigates a contemporary issue significant to the field of ID. The intention is to explore research and theory that comes other disciplines to help advance the profession of ID. Our goal is to imagine a world with responsible, sustainable and inclusive built environments and take decisive actions to begin creating such a future. Thus, we will aim to:
1) connect researchers across divergent and dispersed fields,
2) provide a platform to collaborate and to define a common set of interests and research questions, and
3) establish a new direction for ID research, scholarship and practice.

Migration and (Im)mobilities
Florida International University, Miami, FL
Each year the Sociology, Anthropology, Geography, Graduate Student Association (SAGGSA) at Florida International University hosts an interdisciplinary conference around an overarching theme that speaks to current issues and debates in anthropology, geography and sociology. This conference is intended to provide a supportive and collaborative forum for graduate students to present original research and engage with other graduates and faculty researching similar topics from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. As such, we welcome and encourage presentations on research in any stage, formative or finished, and from any social science perspective. This year we invite papers that critically engage with migration and mobilities, broadly defined.
Migration and mobility are constantly shaping the social, political, and ideological fabric of our world, as they have done throughout history. From people and ideas to goods and resources, every movement encounters friction in its path as it comes into contact with existing structures of identity, violence, and economy. This friction produces inconsistencies in the progress of movements, rendering some subjects immobile while others incorporate seamlessly into the structures that resist them. From the immigration system and its impact on the lives of those fleeing violent social and climatic changes to the impact of social and economic systems, which selectively embrace, commodify, and reject people and material culture, the topic of migration and mobility is rife with inequalities. This conference is an invitation to interrogate these inequalities and the structures that create them. Potential topics may include current and historical discussions of: human and non-human migration, human rights, climate change, climate justice, disaster response, diaspora studies, colonization, decolonization, race, gender, intersectionality, spatial inequalities, food access, health care, supply chains, trade, and the complex entanglements of material and non-material elements of society as it is shaped by migration. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to, broad themes such as:
• Climate Change, Disaster Recovery, and Human Rights o Security and environmental change o Environmental activists and social movements o Globalization, Neoliberalism and Resilience • Health and Resource Disparities o Race and structural violence o Access inequalities in healthcare, food, or education o Impact studies • Theories and methodologies for studying migration and mobility o Gendered perspectives o Indigenous knowledge and technologies o Flexible citizenship • Mobility and Immobility: State, structural, or systemic “pathways” o Informal economies o Parallel and alternative systems o Community organization and activism o Trade and international relations
Abstracts should be submitted via the conference website by December 15, 2019. Please limit abstracts to 250 words. Accepted participants will be notified before the start of the Spring 2020 semester. Accepted papers will be organized topically by the conference organizing committee. .
Any questions can be directed to Susannah Barr (email@example.com).
