CA-NAME 10th Annual Conference: “Abolishing the Colonial Project: Sharing, Examining and Reflecting on Our Practices.”
The California Chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education (CA-NAME) is organizing its 10th Annual Statewide Conference. The conference will be held online Saturday, May 1, 2021 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM. We are honored to share sponsorship with Merritt Community College, who has been at the heart of the resistance against the colonial project by the Black Panther Party’s leaders Huey Newton and Bobby Seal. The conference’s theme of “Abolishing the Colonial Project: Sharing, Examining and Reflecting on Our Practices.” Keynote speakers include Dr. Bettina Love, and Dr. Dulcinea Lara.

The conference theme expands on Althusser’s notion of the ideological and repressive state apparatus and Ruiz, Lara, and Greene’s (2018) argument that schools mirror a repressive state apparatus in order to sustain a colonial project. We seek contributions that value the spirit of resistance and organizing in order to dismantle the colonial project, and that honor the community cultural wealth of all peoples and practitioners dedicated to critical multicultural, ethnic studies education. Also, what can we do to change the curriculum to make it more liberatory ?
