The African American Studies Program at Boston University invites proposals for individual papers and complete panels on all aspects of the global encounter of peoples of Asian and peoples of African descent from antiquity to the present. We seek to convene an interdisciplinary international assembly of scholars interested in exploring how the peoples of Africa and Asia and their Diaspora have interacted with each other and impacted the development of the modern world. We welcome proposals on all aspects of this historic encounter including presentations that explore the social and cultural construction of collective identities such as Asian, Black, Japanese, and Indian as well as those that examine the nature of interethnic, interracial, intercultural, and international exchanges among blacks and Asians. Proposals may focus on a single geographic area, such as Japan or the United States, may be comparative in perspective, or may adopt a global framework.
Please send a 250 word abstract together with a current curriculum vita. To be considered proposals must be received no later than October 15, 2001.
