We are seeking papers, panels*, artistic renderings, posters and other presentations on work by scholars from all disciplines, as well as organizers and activists engaging the novelty, advances, and originality of Africana cultural expressions across disciplines. We are especially interested in creating those three E's - engagement, experience, and encountering - that preserve and inform Africana cultural expressions, even when other elements of Africaneity are the subject of contestation and debate.
Prospective speakers are invited to submit a 200-word proposal along with a cover note indicating the title, author's name, affiliation, telephone number and e-mail address to the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th July 2011.
*We welcome panel proposals for up to three presenters. A proposal should be provided for each presentation on the panel. Already constituted panels, which are accepting paper proposals include: Oral Literature; Music; Visual Arts; Theatre; and Philosophy and Religion.
