CFP: “New Scholarship on the Black Atlantic” Symposium, University of Utah (Salt Lake City, October 2-3)

The History Department of the University of Utah will host a two-day symposium entitled “New Scholarship on the Black Atlantic” on October 2-3, 2015. We welcome proposals for papers that address transnational connections and diasporic identities from scholars who enter the study of the Black Atlantic from a variety of geographical locations, including Africa, the Americas, Europe, and the Caribbean. Although we encourage those working in an interdisciplinary mode to apply, preference will be given to scholars whose primary training is in History.
