This is a call for papers for the 8th annual Uncovering Connections: Cultural Endurance between Africa, the Americas and the Caribbean conference to be held March 8-10, 2007 at Medgar Evers College, Brooklyn, NY.
Conceptually, papers should (1) address and promote an understanding of African culture as inclusive of the culture of Africans on the continent and Africans throughout the world, (2) foster scholarship that illustrates and investigates the mechanisms through which African culture has survived despite invasions, enslavement and colonization and (3) encourage the exploration of the cultural continuities between Africa and Africans throughout the Diaspora.
Interested faculty members, independent researchers and graduate students should forward a one to two-page proposal with literature references by December 31, 2006 to CansonGrif@optonline.net
