Race, Ethnicity and Place Conference VIII

September 21-23, 2016
Kent State University, Ohio

The Race, Ethnicity, and Place (REP) Conference, created by John Frazier with Binghamton University's Department of Geography and Administration, fosters dialogue on issues related to the racial and ethnic transformation of places. The overriding purpose of REP is to promote understanding among the myriad groups, through research and discussion in the United States and other areas of the world (Africa, Australia, Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and Europe). REP encourages interdisciplinary perspectives and philosophical and methodological diversity. REP is open to participation by academicians, students, practitioners, lay persons and government, business and nonprofit agency representatives. The Conference ideally rotates among U.S. regions, incorporating a regional focus, while maintaining national and international perspectives.

Undergraduate and graduate students at Binghamton University are encouraged to submit posters in a competition for funding for travel, registration and conference meals to attend the REP VIII conference. See the Research Posters page for details.

Previous conferences have been held at Binghamton University (2002 and 2010), Howard University (2004), Texas State University-San Marcos (2006), University of Miami (2008), University of Puerto Rico (2012), and Texas Christian University (2014).
