From January 6 to January 8, 2011 the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and the CUNY Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean will hold its annual conference on research in the field of African American and African Diaspora Studies. We are organizing a panel that proposes new theoretical paradigms or examines the historical connections and moments of rupture between African-American women and Latinos/as of African descent from the Spanish-speaking Caribbean during the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Although not necessary, we are especially interested in projects that consider the concept or act of travel and investigate events and utilize archival sources located outside of the United States. Interested persons should send their contact information, university affiliation, and a 150 word paper proposal to Lauren Hammond at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference will be held at the Schomburg Center, located at 135th Street and Malcolm X Boulevard in Harlem, and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, located at 365 Fifth Avenue.
