#KAAN2018 Call for Proposals


Our conferences are meaningful because of the wide number of people willing to present their experiences, expertise, research and thoughts with the community. We are excited to hear your proposals for #KAAN2018!

In our theme Caring for our Community: Mental Health, Self-Care, and Advocacy, we seek proposals exploring holistic well-being of adoptees and adoptive families. What does it mean when we create a space to delve deeper into moments of struggle? How do we grow as individuals and communities as a result of healthy dialogue? Tell us about advances in academic research, mental health services, activism in South Korea and the US, and in the day-to-day interactions within families and peer groups. Further information on our theme can be found on the session proposal form below or print out the details here.

For each session being proposed, two types of forms are required:

Session Proposal Form (Part I): Complete this form for each session being proposed. If multiple people are proposing a particular session, the person coordinating the session should submit one proposal for the entire group.

Individual Speaker Application (Part II): Each individual speaker involved in a session proposal must complete this form. It gives us your biography as well as information on any needed financial support. If you are involved with multiple proposals, you need to submit only one speaker form.

Proposals are due by November 1, 2017.
