Plenary Session 
Saturday Session 3 - Plenary Sessions 
Hilton Minneapolis 
Room: Salon C 
For the past 30 years, LSA has used formal and informal mechanisms in an attempt to increase the diversity of its membership. Despite these efforts, scholars of color have not achieved full integration throughout Association activities and scholarship on race issues has not achieved the prominence it deserves. This roundtable features LSA members of different racial and ethnic backgrounds with varied lengths of tenure and involvement with LSA. Each will be asked to reflect on their experience as a person of color in LSA and identify what they see as barriers to fuller integration. Drawing on these experiences, the participants will look at measures the Association might take better to integrate scholars of color in all Association activities and promote more attention to research on racial issues.
