CACE 2018: Call for Abstracts and Panel Proposals

The African American and African Diaspora Studies Program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) invites abstracts and panel proposals to be submitted for its 2018 Conference on African American & African Diasporic Cultures & Experience (CACE). In celebration of UNCG’s 125th anniversary, the theme for this year’s conference is “Shared Place and Fate: Coming Together to Transform Tomorrow.” This conference theme will focus on negotiating and challenging divisive discourse and coming together to solve the issues impacting people of African descent and other communities.

We welcome paper abstracts, panel proposals, poster presentations, and performance proposals that respond to the conference theme and its relationship with Black Communities. Collaborative presentations between students and faculty/mentors and individual abstracts are encouraged. Presentations from faculty and friends of the community are welcome. We are also open to students and groups who would like to provide a spoken word presentation for the Literary Cafe. The deadline to submit an abstract is Dec. 6, 2017.

Please send a 150 word abstract and a 50 word bio, including name, major/discipline, and university affiliation to as a word document or a PDF file.
