Recent political events have ushered in a rise of nationalism not seen since the last century.  Divisive rhetoric and populist agendas continue to proliferate around the globe.  Moreover, misguided policies spanning criminal justice reform and the environment perpetuate systemic injustice.  Exposing the normative discourse is important in understanding the context of these policies.  This year’s CPP conference invites abstract submissions on the following topics (relevant topics to the mission of the CPP are welcome):

  • Nationalism
    • Pluralism and identity
    • Health care
    • Gun violence
    • Military-Industrial complex
    • Protest movements (non-violent resistance, free speech)
    • Police violence
    • Borders
    • Surveillance state
  • Mass migrations
    • War
    • Refugees
    • State violence
  • Economic system
  • Educational systems
  • Environmental justice
  • Criminal justice reform

Submission Guidelines: Please submit an abstract (no more than 500 words) to Dr. Amin Asfari at aasfari@waketech.edu by July 30, 2017.  Please include your name, institutional affiliation,        e-mail address and paper title in the body of your e-mail.  Please use “CPP 2017 submission” in the subject line of your email.

Acceptance notices will be sent out to authors no later than September 15th.
