McGregor Memorial Conference Center
12th Annual Conference inCitizenship Studies Governance & Citizenship Wayne State UniversityDetroit, Michigan March 12-14, 2015 Abstracts due October 15, 2014 The affordances of citizenship are bound in many ways to structures of governance that provide and at the same time deny access to power. While formal structures of governance establish rights and responsibilities, there are many additional forms of governance people use to orchestrate and affirm their community membership, among them are civic organizations, community groups, and NGOs. The Center for the Study of Citizenship invites proposals for its 2015 annual conference that explore the many dimensions of the theme of governance and citizenship. The Center welcomes proposals that focus on: formal or informal governance local, national and international governance as well as proposals that explore the nature of governance as a means of delimiting access authority power and responsibility This list touches the surface of topics connected to governance and citizenship. Although the program committee will give preference to proposals that are directly relevant to the conference theme, proposals on all aspects of the study of citizenship are welcome. Abstracts of no more than 500 words are welcomed for consideration. Proposals, along with a short biography (50 words), and your twitter name (if you have one) should be submitted in one file to the Center's Event & Conference Coordinator, Helen Callow (citizenship@wayne.edu) no later than October 15, 2014.

Special Events

The Wayne State University’s Office of Special Events and Services was created to support the university and its schools, colleges and departments in planning major special events. Because the university is large and its initiatives are great, it is important that the university has a centralized office that is committed to assisting in the scheduling and execution of major events.

Special events are regularly conducted at all levels and locations throughout the university system in support of the university’s strategic vision and brand identity. The Office of Special Events seeks to provide a consistent and positive university image while maintaining maximum flexibility for events to appropriately reflect the distinctiveness of the school, college, department or campus responsible for planning and sponsoring the event. When involved, the office offers guidance and assistance in the following areas:

  • Help the university's schools, colleges, departments and campuses avoid conflicts when scheduling events
  • Help the Office of the President in maximizing event-appearance opportunities
  • Provide presidential protocol guidelines for special guests and invitees
  • Maximize university resources in regards to events
  • Support and promote the university’s positive brand image
