We are seeking an additional panelist to present his/her work on PARENT ACTIVISM for the Triangle African American History Conference, which will be held at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill from February 28-March 1, 2014.The topic of the conference is: “The Place of Education in African American History and Culture,” with Professor Martha Biondi as the guest speaker.
My name is Tikia K. Hamilton and I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of History at Princeton University. My co-panelist is Lauren Tess Bundy and she is a doctoral candiate at the University of Maryland. Specifically, my work focuses on the D.C. area during the pre-Brown era, and Tess’s work examines Boston in post-civil rights era. We are delighted to have Katherine Charron of North Carolina State University serve as our panel chair (if our panel is selected).
Although individual submissions are welcome, having presented at TAAHC before, we would like to organize a panel that focuses on parent activism in education. So, if you are interested, please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org with:
a) your name and graduate status, b) your university, c) a short description of your topic.
Please note: 150-200 word submissions are due to the conference organizers by mid-November, so we desire to have our panel submission formulated by the first week of November. Priority will be granted to anyone who can meet this deadline.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Tikia and Tess
