SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL The Bulosan Center for Filipinx Studies is excited to announce our second research conference, set for Saturday May 2nd at the University of California, Davis. This conference continues last year’s conversations and dialogues around Filipinx Studies’ legacy.

We invite all students (undergraduate and graduate level), community organizers, professionals, and community members to submit panel proposals and academic papers falling under the study, movement, and community of Filipinx and Filipinx-American studies. Individuals may submit a proposal for a workshop, panel, or working paper.

This year’s conference theme is “The Transnational Filipinx”. Filipinos have a global impact that is often ignored or discounted by professional scholars. An example of this is the academic neglect shown towards the Filipinx diaspora to the United States, a process that spanned the twentieth century and continues to impact the present. But the Filipinx experience goes beyond the migrant experience and multi-spacial family, which is something we hope our panels capture.

We welcome potential workshops, discussions, research, and community work focused on the lived experiences of the transnational Filipinx and the positionality of Filipinx individuals across nations, identities, and experiences.

Although our conference theme is “The Transnational Filipinx,” we welcome submissions focused on various topics including:

-Immigration and migration-Resistance against patriarchal norms and forces within the Filipinx community-Transnationalism-The politics and cultures of Filipinx communities-Queer and LGBT issues within the Filipinx community-Issues of education and activism in regards to the Filipinx communities-Health and health policy -Filipinx and Filipinx-American hxstories, narratives, and movements.-Other issues and topics within the realms of Filipinx studies or the Filipinx community at large
