Yippee! The happiest place on Earth. Actually, I'm going to the National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in American Higher Education - but it's in Disney World! I'm going through the program for the conference and there is a shit load of stuff to attend, all of which looks really interesting. I think there was something about teaching diversity through storytelling, which I already know I'm going to. There's also plenty of stuff related to Indian issues. There's also some cool people attending like John Carlos, Angela Davis and Danny Glover. I can't wait.
And this is also the beginning of a two-year institute at UMaine in which I'll participate in numerous discussions and workshops and eventually graduate with an impressive certificate that will look pretty spiffy on a resume.
