HOUSTON’S BLACK HISTORY WORKSHOP
MARCH 20-22, 2003
The seventh workshop on the theme “Oppositional Culture and Class Struggle” will be held at the University of Houston, March 20-22, 2003. Particularly appealing might be papers dealing with a global/diasporic/comparative perspective as well as a U. S. South focus, or free blacks in the developing capitalist centers of the late 1700s through the twentieth century and the proletarianization of African American labor.
Participation in the workshop is limited to senior graduate students, those who plan to defend their dissertation in the next year, and junior faculty members, those who have defended their dissertation in the last three years.
Proposals for papers, covering any aspect of the theme, should be no more than two pages. Proposals, plus a letter of recommendation from your dissertation advisor, should be received by October 31, 2002. Send submissions to the address below.
Those selected to participate will be informed by November 15, 2002.
Participants are expected to submit their papers by February 15, 2003. Papers should be substantial, somewhere in the region of 25 pages, including notes, and should aim to address issues raised in your dissertation. Whatever you do, do not submit a chapter from your dissertation. Copies of each paper will be sent to all members of the workshop by February 20, 2003.
The cost of travel and accommodations will be covered by the Workshop. Participants will also be offered a modest honorarium of $200.
The Workshop is sponsored by the University of Houston's Department of History.
