CACE Conference submissions due Dec. 6

On Feb. 20-21, 2018, the African American and African Diaspora Studies Program will host its annual 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.” The 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.

Conference organizers 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. They 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.

Those wishing to submit their work for this year’s conference can send a 150-word abstract and a 50-word bio, including name, major/discipline and university affiliation to aads@uncg.edu as a Word document or a PDF file.
