The Global Impact of Rosa Parks, A Centenary Celebration of the Legacy of Rosa Parks
The Rosa Parks Library and Museum, Troy University
February 6-8, 2013
Born February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama, Rosa Louise Parks became one of the most inspiring and enduring symbols in modern American history. In honor of Rosa Parks’s 100th birthday, The Rosa Parks Library and Museum at Troy University will host a symposium on February 6-8, 2013, re-examining and re-assessing Rosa Parks’s legacy in regard to the American Civil Rights Movement and the influence she has had on freedom movements outside of the United States. To this end, we welcome panel proposals as well as individual paper proposals that address the legacy, role, or impact of Rosa Parks on American civil rights or on freedom struggles worldwide. In conjunction with the symposium, we plan to publish a selection of the papers in an edited collection of essays.
Paper proposals are due by November 16, 2012, and abstracts should not exceed more than one page. Submissions should include an abstract, a CV, and contact information. For panel proposals, please include abstracts of each paper, CVs for presenters and panel organizer, and contact information for all participants. Please submit your proposal to Dan Puckett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
