Submit a Proposal for a Student Poster

Proposal submission deadline: February 1, 2023.

Students are invited to submit a poster related to any of our human rights themes. “Poster” presentations should highlight student research or community-focused work or advocacy. Posters might include a printed poster (maximum 48” x 48” / 122 cm x 122 cm), slides on a tablet, an artistic creation, or other visuals that can share your story or research with a small group. Student Poster Proposals require a title (limited to 50 words), an abstract (limited to 200 words), and three key words.

The Challenging Borders in Domestic and International Human Rights conference will explore and critically evaluate the borders that have been created in human rights research and practice. Albion College invites faculty students, staff and community leaders from GLCA and GLAA campuses and universities to interrogate the borders that have been built in the human rights field between the domestic and international and categories of rights.

Within the conference theme of challenging borders, we imagine four areas of focus: 1) identity rights especially focusing on race, gender, ethnicity and sexuality; 2) labor rights; 3) refugee and migrant rights; and 4) environmental and climate rights.
