The Africana Studies Department at the University of North Carolina Charlotte is inviting scholars to submit abstracts for its 11th annual symposium (abstracts from advanced graduate students may also be accepted). This year’s theme is “Caribbean Women in Contemporary Societies: Trends and Prospects.” We hope that scholars will examine the opportunities and challenges that Caribbean women face in their respective societies. We are also interested in papers focusing on the evolution of the women’s condition over time. Papers addressing issues of labor and gender relations, tourism, governance and business, Diaspora and transnational migration, parenting, religion, sexuality and feminism, activism and education will be considered. Abstracts are due on November 1st 2012. If accepted, participants should submit the full paper (5000-7000 words) by March 1st, 2013. The symposium will convene at UNC Charlotte on April 3, 2013. Following the conference, the papers will be published in a special issue of a top tier interdisciplinary academic journal. The Africana Studies Department will provide some assistance with accommodation and travel.
Please send proposals of approximately 250 words and a short biography to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1st 2012.
