Abstracts, panel proposals accepted for CACE

The 23rd Annual Conference on African American Culture and Experience (CACE), hosted by UNCG’s African American Studies program, will be held October 18-19, 2012. The theme will be “New Approaches to Black Leadership in the African Diaspora.”

Since the election of President Barack Obama, there have been numerous conversations across the world regarding his leadership style. While this conference is not focused on Barack Obama and his presidency, his private life and political career provide stimulating topics for considering the state of Black leadership in the 21st century. His work as a community organizer and his impact on international governments provides us with topics for engaging and informative critical discourse.

Paper abstracts and panel proposals are being accepted. Details and a listing of potential topics are at www.uncg.edu/afs/docs/CFP_CACE_2012.pdf.

Abstracts must be submitted by May 1, 2012. Submit as a Word or PDF document to afs@uncg.edu. Questions may be submitted to that address as well. Abstracts from non-academics, graduate and undergraduate students are welcomed.
