Dr. Orlando Taylor, president of the Washington, D.C. Campus of The Chicago School, will give the luncheon keynote address at the Race, Ethnicity & Place Conference 2010 on October 7, 2010 at State University of New York in Binghamton, New York. Dr. Taylor will also serve on a panel during the conference focusing on "Internationalizing at Home: Strategies for Advancing Internationalizing Goals without Leaving Home."
In his keynote address, President Taylor will discuss how race, ethnicity and place issues will increasingly permeate the U.S. landscape in the 21st century and affect everything from the political and social environment to the physical environment. He will pay particular attention to issues of sustainability-both human and physical-and the psychological consequences of migration, immigration and the demands of the earth's physical resources. He will call for even greater interdisciplinarity in addressing these issues.
The Race, Ethnicity & Place Conference fosters dialogue on a range of issues related to the racial and ethnic transformation of places. It encourages interdisciplinary perspectives, philosophical and methodological diversity, and professional and student perspectives on such issues. http://rep-conference.binghamton.edu/html/programs.htm
