The Scholarship of Toni A. Gregory: A Discussion of “Leading with Integral Diversity Maturity: Malcolm X and Nelson Mandela”
When: Wednesday, July 10, 2013; 2:00 – 4:00 PM
Where: Marriott Kingsgate – Room Amp II
All interested students and faculty are cordially invited to participate in an hour-long discussion of the forthcoming book chapter, “Leading with Integral Diversity Maturity: Malcolm X and Nelson Mandela” (2013), by Toni A. Gregory and Michael A. Raffanti.
Following the discussion, co-author Michael Raffanti will join the group to discuss the genesis and process of this collaborative project.
In a 2010 review of a conference presentation that provided the basis for “Leading with Integral Diversity Maturity,” UI&U graduate Jeannie Carlisle Volckmann elucidates:
Toni A. Gregory & Michael A. Raffanti…develop a framework, Integral Diversity Maturity (IDM), by drawing heavily from the work of Roosevelt Thomas and his concept of “diversity tension,” as well as Ken Wilber’s AQAL model of interpretation. This tension existed both for Mandela and Malcolm X (as well as millions of others acted upon by the oppression of racism). Yet through a process of personal reflection and responding and reacting to the diversity tension, Mandela and Malcolm X gained a ‘clarity’ about the nature of the tension. This clarity, or ‘maturity,’ allowed both men to accommodate new, expansive, and productive ways of relating to self and interacting with the world as a whole.” (“Notes from the Field,” Integral Leadership Review 10.4 : 2)

INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR ETHNO-RELIGIOUS MEDIATION
“Fostering the culture of peace among ethnic and religious groups”
CALL FOR PAPERS: JOURNAL OF LIVING TOGETHER
The Role of Religion and Ethnicity in Contemporary Conflict, and Related Emerging Tactics, Strategies, Methodologies, of Mediation and Resolution
The International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation, New York is seeking scholarly papers/articles for the maiden edition of its journal, Living Together.
The Journal of Living Together is a multi-disciplinary, scholarly journal publishing peer-reviewed articles within the fields of ethnic conflict, religious/faith-based conflict, and their methods of resolution, with emphasis on mediation and interfaith dialogue.
Living Together is published by the International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation, New York and is a forum for scholarly reflection and dialogue regarding the most important emerging issues in the fields of ethnic and religious conflicts and their resolution.
A multi-disciplinary research journal, Living Together focuses on a theoretical and practical understanding of ethno-religious conflicts and their methods of resolution with emphasis on mediation and interfaith dialogue. The journal will publish articles that discuss or analyze ethnic and religious/faith-based conflicts or those that present new theories, methods and techniques for ethnic and religious conflict resolution or new empirical research addressing either ethno-religious conflict or resolution, or both.
To achieve this goal, Living Together will publish several types of articles: long articles that make major theoretical and practical contributions, shorter articles that make major empirical contributions including case studies and case series, and brief articles that target rapidly rising trends or new topics in ethno-religious conflicts: their nature, origin, consequence, prevention and resolution. Personal experiences, both good and bad, in dealing with ethno-religious conflicts as well as a pilot and observational studies are also welcome.
The first issue of Living Together will be published in winter 2013 / 2014 with the following theme:
The Role of Religion and Ethnicity in Contemporary Conflict, and Related Emerging Tactics, Strategies, Methodologies, of Mediation and Resolution
For our first issue, we are particularly interested in articles that address any of the following questions:
·What are the most devastating impacts or consequences of ethnic and religious/faith-based conflicts?
·Which prevention, management and resolution models have been previously used to resolve or manage the particular ethnic and/or faith-based conflict you are studying? And what are their outcomes?
·What has been the most significant past progress in ethno-religious conflict resolution? What? Where? And why?
· What are the important new directions and / or new methods/tools of resolving ethno-religious conflicts?
·What are the important new directions and / or new methods/tools of preventing ethno-religious conflicts?
Articles sought are those written within the last decade and shall focus on any of the following locations: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Europe, North America, South America, Australia and Oceania.
The Journal of Living Together will publish articles that bridge theory and practice, showing how theories of religious and ethnic conflict resolution are being applied by professionals in the field. These articles shall include practical application in terms of activities that have already shown some success, or would be feasible to test as a pilot project in the near term.
Areas of Interest:
To be considered for the Journal of Living Together, papers/articles must focus on any of the following fields or related areas: ethnic conflict; religious/faith-based conflict; community conflict; theories of ethnic and faith-based conflicts; ethnic relations and affiliations; religious relations and affiliations; multiculturalism; civil-military relations in ethnically divided societies; role of political parties in ethno-religious conflict; the military and ethno-religious conflict; ethnic and religious organizations/associations and the militarization of ethnic and religious conflicts; role of ethnic group representatives, community and religious leaders in ethno-religious conflict; causes, nature, effects/impact/consequences of ethno-religious conflict; inter-generational pilots / models for ethno-religious conflict resolution; strategies or techniques for reducing ethnic and religious conflicts; the United Nations’ response to ethnic and religious conflicts; interfaith dialogue; conflict monitoring, prediction, prevention, analysis, mediation and other forms of conflict resolution applicable to ethno-religious conflict; case studies; personal or group stories; reports, narratives/stories or experiences of conflict resolution practitioners; role of music, sports, education, media, arts, and celebrities in fostering a culture of peace among ethnic and religious groups; etc.

Whose Beloved Community?: Black Civil and LGBT Rights Movements An international conference at Emory University, March 27-29, 2014
Call for Proposals: Review of proposals begins June 17, 2013. Notification of acceptance will be no later than September 15, 2013.
The role of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in both race-based and sexuality-based civil rights movements is frequently rendered invisible as a result of prevailing national narratives that present (presumed white) LGBT communities and (presumed straight) Black communities as opposing forces. In recent years, however, an increasing number of scholars and activists have produced work seeking to make visible the vital points of intersection and contention among the U.S. Civil Rights movement, the LGBT equality movement, and Black LGBT communities. This work is shaped by questions related to identity formation, intersectionality, tokenism, marriage equality, the role of religion and “respectability” in African American communities, the emergence of the South as a center of Black LGBT life in the U.S., HIV/AIDS and its continuing effect on African American communities, the proliferation of a prison-industrial complex unprepared for its LGBT population, and the appropriation of the civil rights movement by the right. This conference seeks to make visible and critically engage the points of convergence and divergence between these two historic, overlapping, yet distinct social movements that continue to transform civil society, law, and the academy.
We encourage paper and panel proposals on a wide range of topics including, but not exclusively encompassing, the following:
• The legacy of the Civil Rights Movement
• Identifications and disidentifications with “movements”
• Black LGBT leaders and popular figures, historical and contemporary
• Literary, artistic and popular culture engagements with Black LGBT identities
• Inclusion and marginalization of transgender and bisexual identities in Black LGBT communities/politics
• Intersections with other post-1960s civil rights movements (other racial groups, people with disabilities, women, etc.)
• Black LGBT activism in relation to work in other LGBT communities of color
• Racial diversity in White-led LGBT organizations
• Law and politics
• Black queer politics of space
• Public health
• Memory, mourning, trauma, and resilience
• Black LGBT families
• Marriage equality movements
• Sexuality and respectability
• Class and elitism
• Sexism, classism, and other “isms” in the Black LGBT movement
• Black masculinity in LGBT communities
• Black feminism in LGBT communities
• Intergenerational issues
• Intersections between public advocacy/policy and academia
• Intersections of U.S. Civil Rights with Black queer Atlantic political movements
• The future of Black queer studies
• Teaching Black LGBT history, Black queer studies, etc.
• Black LGBT university populations
• LGBT issues and Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Each submission must include a cover page with paper titles, presenters, their affiliations, and a current email contact, along with a maximum two-page c.v. of each presenter. For individual papers, please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words. For panels, submit an overall abstract of no more than 500 words and individual paper descriptions of no more than 250 words each. Please submit materials via email to Whose.firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:Whose.email@example.com>.
This conference is generously supported by the Arcus Foundation and Emory University.
