The Harvard African Language Program is seeking abstracts for the second annual African Languages in the Disciplines conference (April 21 and 22, 2011), which will build on the important conversations started last year as we continue to engage scholars and African heritage communities in serious discussion about the contributions of African languages to the disciplines.
This conference aims to bring together a diverse range of scholars across a variety of disciplines. Possible themes include, but are not limited to, the contribution of African languages to the study of literature, music, film, performance, visual arts, media studies, history, philosophy, religion, anthropology, sociology, gender studies, political science, psychology, economics, education, geography, environmental science, legal studies, and public health.
Please apply online at www.alp.fas.harvard.edu by Friday, March 1, 2011. We ask for a 250-word abstract outlining a 15-minute presentation as well as a brief biography.
