Since the election of President Barack Obama there have been numerous conversations across the world regarding his leadership style. While this conference is not focused on Barack Obama and his presidency, his private life and political career provide stimulating topics for considering the state of Black leadership in the 21st century. His work as a community organizer and his impact on international governments provides us with topics for engaging and informative critical discourse. In keeping with our commitment to interdisciplinary studies, we welcome approaches from the arts, humanities, social sciences, and education. Individual abstracts should be 250 words and panel abstracts should be 750 words or less. Abstracts must be submitted by May 1, 2012. All proposed participants must include a short biography of five sentences with institutional affiliation and an email address. Submit as a Word or PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions may be submitted to that address as well. Abstracts from non-academics, graduate and undergraduate students are welcomed. For more information visit, www.uncg.edu/afs.
