Call for Panelists: The Uses and Abuses of Fashion in the Early Republic

Hello historians, 

A co-panelist and I are looking to organize a panel on the politics of beauty and fashion for the SHEAR 2019 conference. We know it's a bit late, but if anyone is interested, we're still looking for another presenter, a panel chair, and a commentator. 

We're interested in broad questions:

New Issue on African and African Diasporan Writers (JENdA Journal)

The peer-reviewed JENdA: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies has just published Issue 30 on African and African Diasporan Writers. This issue on African Literature in JENdA is an exploration that features conversations with writers discussing their work and inspiration. This issue is for anyone. For those teaching literature, the issue is a great asset, and it comes with the added benefit that these cross and trans-continental dialogues ask us to consider that local and global can and does occupy the same space.
