The Black Power Movement in Historical Perspective: Dialogues on Race and American Society
Call for Papers
The Institute for African American Studies at the University of Connecticut, Storrs announces a call for papers for a conference on the Black Power Movement, November 13-14, 2003. Thirty-five years after the beginning of the Black Power Movement, a growing body of scholars has begun to offer new and fascinating approaches at understanding the complexities of Black Power. From Kwanzaa to Black Studies programs to music and the arts, the legacies of Black Power are palpable. The conference organizers wish to create a broad-based, interdisciplinary program that includes scholars, artists, activists, and cultural workers.
We seek papers dealing with, but not limited to:
Gender and Black Power
Local organizing in schools, prisons, etc.
Expressive culture, the arts and Black Power
The influence of Black Power outside of African American communities
Feminist and womanist perspectives
We will consider both papers and complete panels. One-page abstracts should be sent by April 1, 2003. Please send abstracts by email attachment in Microsoft Word format to the email address below.
