Call for Papers, Panels, or Workshops for
"Crossing Boundaries, Making Connections: American Slavery and Antislavery Now and Then"
Sponsored by Historians Against Slavery
Hosted by the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Cincinnati, Ohio
September 20 and 21, 2013
This antislavery conference is designed to facilitate dialogue, scholarship, and action in our efforts to end contemporary slavery. This conference seeks to bring together survivors, educators, activists and historians and other scholars to explore best strategies for abolitionist work, including using the history of American slavery before 1865 to direct how we approach abolitionism today. Hence, this conference proposes to cross all disciplines and shatters a seemingly impenetrable barrier that separates scholars from activists and historians of chattel slavery from scholars who work on contemporary slavery.
We are seeking a broad range of ideas for papers, panels, and workshops.
