Call for essays: UW BIPOC Student Voices Reader

The UW–Madison Libraries is pleased to announce a call for proposals for contributions to an anthology of student-written essays with a focus on students’ experiences at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, in Madison, or Wisconsin at large, and how these experiences are informed by their identities. This anthology will be openly published using UW Pressbooks. Please share this eCALS article and/or the call for proposals link here with BIPOC undergraduates you know: https://go.wisc.edu/2av4uu.

Student authors selected for this anthology will be compensated $200 with funding made possible through a Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement (DDEEA) Innovation Grant.

Contributions are invited from undergraduate UW–Madison students identifying as Indigenous, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latinx, Middle Eastern and North African, and/or Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander. Students must be planning to be enrolled for the Fall 2021 semester.

For full details regarding a description of the reader, student author expectations, and proposal submission requirements, please view the call for proposals. For further information on identified outcomes for this project, view the submitted Accountability Plan for the DDEEA Innovation Grant: https://go.wisc.edu/axp2wm.

Students interested in submitting should complete the proposal form at https://go.wisc.edu/w07tyx on or before April 2, 2021. For questions, please contact Kristin Lansdown at bipocvoicesreader@library.wisc.edu.
