Event description

Description

The work of Dr. Ofelia García--noted scholar, educator, and activist in bilingual education and critical sociolinguistics--has empowered people across geographical, linguistic, and disciplinary borders. Her work has prompted multiple generations of students and colleagues to reconsider traditional definitions of language, to reimagine more equitable and just forms of education, and to realize the power of multilingual communities around the world. Students from Ofelia’s home institution, the Graduate Center at the City University of New York, have come together to organize a one-day symposium on Friday, December 14, 2018 to reflect upon her contributions and to discuss extensions and new directions.

The Symposium will include:

  • A gallery session showcasing posters and other multimedia work

  • A keynote

  • Performances

  • A panel discussion

  • An interactive art event to promote community reflection

  • Time to celebrate and connect

The student organizing committee envisions a collaborative, interactive, supportive and critical space. We invite students, community members, faculty, scholars, and educators to submit proposals for posters and multimedia work for display in the gallery session.

Deadline for submissions: Friday, October 19, 2018
Presenters notified by: Thursday, November 1, 2018
