We are pleased to invite submissions for papers to be delivered at an international conference, “‘Don’t Say Goodbye to the Pork Pie Hat’: Re –Evaluating Larry Neal’s Creative and Critical Vision of the Black Aesthetic,” hosted and sponsored by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University, and North Carolina Central University on February 10-12, 2006.
The conference will be a landmark event in assessing the formative influence of this artist, scholar, and cultural worker, and is intended as a critical intervention into the project of black cultural studies. We welcome papers addressing topics specific to the art, activism, and scholarship of Larry Neal, and are particularly interested in analyses of Neal’s work that more broadly examine the relationship between the Black Arts Movement and the formation of contemporary black American cultural studies. Each session will be composed of a moderator/respondent and three to four panelists whose presentations will not exceed thirty minutes.
Please send paper titles and abstracts (no more than 250 words) to Mae Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or Carter Mathes at email@example.com, by September 20, 2005.
