Location: Uptown Campus
This year the theme of the symposium is VOICES: Visibility, Orientation, Identity, Creativity, Environment, & Spaces. We hope to engage with themes around the psychological, social, and environmental factors around resistance to oppression and the implications for professional practice and social change from which academics and practitioners can contribute and learn. The CCC Symposium will be held on Feb 15th , 2019. This year we are proud to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Ernesto Javier Martínez who is an interdisciplinary literary critic, a writer, and a tenured associate professor in the Department of Ethnic Studies at the University of Oregon. His talk will be entitled “Queer Arousals in Contexts of Racialized Harm,” an intersectional analysis of the ways that queer men of color negotiate epistemic injustice through the creation and consumption of film, literature, and art. The recurring theoretical preoccupation of this talk is with the question of epistemic injustice, injustice that affects queers of color in our capacity as knowers and as community members worthy of being known.
