Call For Student Papers—Washington College and Goucher College Announce Redefining the American Identity: A Student Conference on Ethnic Diversity

Come Join the Discussion on Diversity in an Open, Intellectual Forum

Chestertown, MD, March 28, 2002 — This student conference is sponsored by Washington College and supported by Goucher College to address the theme of ethnic diversity and national unity in the United States.
Inspired by the tragedy of September 11, 2001, the conference will serve as a forum for discussion exploring issues that celebrate or challenge the diversity of the United States and the unifying forces of democracy that hold our nation together. As evidenced by the recent events—the terrorist attacks, the backlash against Arab-Americans, the rallying of national pride and identity—one characteristic of America that is unique and that should be a source of strength and pride is its diverse communities.

Topics of the Conference will be

1. Where self-identity and national identity meet: Looking at solutions to conflict
2. E Pluribus Unum: Making it work
