    Good Morning CUFA Colleagues,


    The CUFA 2018 annual conference is just 40 days away. Please mark your calendars and finalize your travel plans if you have not done so already. In addition to thought-provoking paper sessions, symposia, CID, and collaborative initiative sessions, this year's conference offers the following opportunities for professional and intellectual growth: 

    • A pre-conference workshop focused on advocacy for undocumented students and families hosted by the Scholars of Color Forum on Wednesday, November 28 at 11:30am.
    • CUFA Graduate Forum research roundtables (10am) followed by a "Conversation with Colleagues" session at noon on Wednesday, November 28.
    • Two featured sessions. The first featured session is scheduled for Thursday, November 29th at 10:30am and will focus on ethnic studies and social studies education. Also on Thursday, the second featured session will allow social studies researchers to hear from journal and book series editors regarding the future of social studies education research. This session will be moderated by Dan Krutka and Michael Milton for the Visions of Ed Podcast.
    • David Stovall will serve as our opening keynote and Dr. Angela Valenzuela is the closing keynote for the CUFA annual conference. Please note that the opening keynote this year is scheduled for 1:10pm on Wednesday afternoon.

    Finally, if you are interested in leading a Java Network literature lunch or simply want to sign up to join an established Java network (there are some good ones already!), use the CUFA 2018 Java Networks Google doc to indicate your book, name, email, and meeting place. Also, if you are interested in organizing a gathering or mentoring session related to a topic of your choice, you can use the CUFA 2018 Unconference Gatherings Google Doc to sign up.

    More reminders are to come over the next few weeks as #CUFA18 approaches. See you soon!
