The quest for human rights has always been a premier concern for those of African descent in the United States as well as within the African Diaspora. The third annual Herman C. Hudson Annual Graduate Symposium of the Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies at Indiana University seeks abstracts of papers exploring these issues from interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary perspectives for presentation at its two-day, international conference on Friday, March 24, 2006 and Saturday, March 25, 2006. We are interested in topics that explore questions pertaining to the cultural, intellectual, historical, social, and political experiences of African descent and African origin people in the U.S. and the broader African Diaspora in relation to this theme.
Interested presenters should submit a one-page abstract and a one-page CV. Panel proposal should include a description of the panel's theme, a one-page abstract of each paper, the name of the panel chair, and a one page CV for each participant. A minimal fee will be charged per participant. All abstracts should include the academic affiliation of each participant.
All materials should be sent to the attention of: Giva A. Wilkerson and Amina McIntyre at firstname.lastname@example.org and postmarked, faxed, or e-mailed no later than, Wednesday, February 15, 2006.
