Carleton University’s newly formed Music and Social Justice Collective is holding an interdisciplinary symposium on the subject of music and social justice entitled “Sound Changes: Music and Social Justice” to be held on February 24 and 25, 2012 at Carleton University. This initiative is an outgrowth of Professor Jesse Stewart’s graduate seminar “Music and Social Justice”. Bringing together graduate students and academics from a wide variety of disciplines as well as performers, community activists, and other cultural workers, the symposium will examine music’s capacity to act as an agent for positive social change in a variety of musical, social, and cultural contexts.

The Global Economic Crisis and Canada: Perception Versus Reality
– 2013 issue of Alternate Routes journal
– Conference on March 23rd, 2012 at Ryerson University in Toronto

Alternate Routes is seeking contributions that go beyond the rhetoric of recession versus recovery as measured by narrowly economistic factors. We are seeking papers that chart the full affects of the global economic crisis and its implications for Canada. In what ways has international instability affected Canada? To what extent are such features structurally-induced, the product of contemporary circumstances, the result of specific policies of particular administrations, or some combination of other factors? What are the characteristics, politics, and forms of resistance to Canadian versions of austerity? What new challenges and opportunities have been created? How should progressives respond?

Proposals for conference are due: January 15, 2012

Article submissions due: April 31st, 2012

ORGANIZING FOR JUSTICE  ((( O4F )))  is looking for workshop proposals!

We are holding our 4th conference/gathering this November (tentatively set for a keynote/feature presentation/workshop Thurs Nov 11 or Fri Nov 12 and full-day of workshops on Sat Nov 13). Note: You can find information on our past gatherings, and more about us, at http://www.organizingforjustice.ca

The O4J gathering is about the themes of social, economic, and environmental justice and healthy communities. A ‘workshop’ session can be a workshop, a presentation, a panel discussion, or an open discussion, or any other format you propose.

The focus of sessions should be on the two O4J gathering purposes:
1) To further/develop an understanding/analysis of strategy/tactics and vision in our efforts for change
2) To assist people in learning skills and tools that can be used in these efforts

The O4J gathering is not focused on having sessions that merely educate people on a certain issue, although some discussion of the issue may be relevant when discussing the types of approaches people (may) take or have taken on that issue.

We are soliciting proposals for sessions to be held on the full-day part of our schedule (Sat Nov 13, unconfirmed). These can be offered in English, French or bilingual.

All session that can be accommodated by our allotted space and time will be accepted. Any needed selection will be made on the basis of matching the above noted O4J gathering purposes and to avoid duplication. Suggestions for combining proposals may be made.

If you are interested in offering to lead/organize or take part in a session, please contact us with the following information (email org4justice@gmail.com or call 613-656-5498, with proposals and/or questions)

ORGANISONS-NOUS POUR LA JUSTICE est à la recherche de suggestions d’ateliers!

Nous comptons tenir notre quatrième conférence au mois de novembre (nous espérons avoir un atelier/présentation jeudi le 11 ou vendredi le 12 novembre, ainsi qu’une journée longue d’ateliers samedi le 13 novembre). Notez: Vous pouvez vous informer au sujet de notre organisation, ainsi que nos conférences précédentes à http://organizingforjustice.ca

Notre conférence se concentra autours des thèmes de justice sociale, environnementale, et économique, ainsi que la création d’une communauté saine et soutenable. Un ‘atelier’ peu être un atelier, une présentation, une discussion, ou n’importe quel autre format que vous proposez.

Un atelier devrais poursuivre un des buts suivant d’organisons-nous pour la justice:
1) De développer nos connaissances/analyser nos stratégies, nos tactiques et notre vision par rapport à notre lutte pour le changement.
2) D’assister les gens à augmenter leurs connaissances et à apprendre de nouveaux outils qui nous aiderons dans nos efforts.

Nous n’avons pas comme but principal d’avoir des ateliers qui ont uniquement comme but d’éduquer les gens sur un sujet en particulier, mais nous reconnaissons qu’un peu de discussion sur le sujet est essentiel pour pouvoir discuter les divers façons que nous pouvons (ainsi que d’autres gens avant nous on pu) approcher le sujet.

Nous recherchons des suggestions pour la journée longue qui prendra place samedi le 13 novembre (date non-confirmée). L’atelier peu se tenir en anglais, en français, ou peu être bilingue.

Tous ateliers pour lesquels nous avons assez d’espace et de temps seront acceptés. Si une sélection deviens nécessaire, nous baserons celle-ci en considérant si les buts d’organisons-nous pour la justice notez ci-haut sont suivis ou pour éviter d’avoir plus d’un atelier sur le même sujet.

Si vous êtes intéresser a donner/organiser ou participer a un atelier, svp contacter-nous et laissez-nous savoir l’information suivante (envoyez un courriel org4justice@gmail.com ou appelez nous 613-656-5498)
