Interrogating Cultural Responsiveness against the Backdrop of Racism and Colonialism
September 30-October 2, 2020
We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Our sincere condolences to any of you who have lost family or loved ones and hopes for a speedy recovery of any who are experiencing poor health. The health disparities laid bare by COVID-19 data and the murders of African American citizens at the hands of law enforcement underscore the importance of addressing racism, which is the backdrop in this year’s conference theme.
Hopeful and optimistic planning continues for the Sixth International Center for Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment (CREA) 2020 Conference, Interrogating Cultural Responsiveness against the Backdrop of Racism and Colonialism, scheduled to be held September 30-October 2 at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago IL.
Our three stellar keynote speakers include:
- Dr. Sandy Grande (Professor and Director, Center for the Critical Study of Race and Ethnicity (CCSRE), Connecticut College);
- Dr. Na’ilah Suad Nasir (President, Spencer Foundation and President-elect American Educational Research Association); and
- Dr. Daniel Solorzano (Professor and Director Center for Critical Race Studies in Education, University of California, Los Angeles)
Additionally, sessions are being organized to include the 88 papers, 57, roundtables, and 19 symposia that were accepted with an offering of outstanding preconference workshops (3 full day and 6 half day).
