CFP's and Announcements
We are looking for a third panelist to join our panel: Memory, Public History, and African American History for ASALH 2014. Paper submissions should highlight the success and failures of including the African American experience alongside older narratives at historic sites, memorials, museums, and in the classroom. Two of the papers on the panel examine the inclusion of the African American narrative at existing Civil War sites in Mississippi and Florida.
On Tuesday, April 29, at 5:00 PM the American Antiquarian Society will offer a Regional Academic Seminar at the Society's Goddard-Daniels House in Worcester, MA. These seminars are offered in association with the history departments ofBrown University, Clark University, and the University of Connecticut.
We are looking for a third panelist for our panel: Education and the Long Civil Rights Struggle. The two papers we have focus on education as a primary goal of African Americans during the post-emancipation period. These papers explore themes of race, religion, gender and politics. Together they provide a foundation for understanding the early discourse around education as a civil right.
If you are interested, please send a brief abstract of your paper and your C.V. to Nicole Myers Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Editors: Tiffany M. Gill and Keisha N. Blain
