“Re-storying” Social Justice: Constructing Coalition at the Intersections of Theory, Community, Positionality, and Practice

This year’s conference theme, “Re-storying” Social Justice: Constructing Coalition at the Intersections of Theory, Community, Positionality, and Practice, is a response to intersecting concerns about the future of the planet, the future of coalitions, and the future of academic work. The WSU SJCon is an interdisciplinary social justice conference, organized, supported, and sustained by diverse members of the WSU Community and the communities that relate, surround, challenge, and enrich us. As such, we are fundamentally committed to coalitions, to being in relationship with others, including the more-than-human world. And, like many, many others before us, we contend that coalitions are a foundational element of the theories and practices necessary for a more equitable future. We invite participants–which we hope will include folks from communities without, around, and inside of the academy, as well as scholars at any stage of their academic career, including undergraduate students–to consider how equitable, sustainable, and accessible futures are only possible if they are possible for all.

Please send a no more than 300-word abstract, 3-minute video, single-page graphic, or other short explanation of your work, and a short biography (no more than 100 words) to the WSU Social Justice Conference planning committee at by February 25th, 2022. Works in progress are very welcome! Please note in the body of your email if you prefer to present virtually or in-person from the WSU Pullman campus and if you have a preference on presentation date.

The 3rd annual WSU Social Justice Conference will be offered virtually via Zoom with in-person networking and workshop opportunities available at the WSU Pullman campus.
