CMRS conferences are interdisciplinary and transnational, dedicated to fostering relationships between people of color, dismantling racial hierarchies, and affirming an ethics of love to subvert dominant paradigms of social identity. CMRS partners with and welcomes arts and cultural organizations, such as Mixed Roots Stories, during each of its conferences to connect scholarly, activist, artist, student, and other communities. The conferences provide an array of panels, roundtables, workshops, poster sessions, exhibitors, film screenings, readings, and performances, as well as caucus meetings and opportunities for socializing and networking.
