Call for Proposals
October 10, 2018
We are excited to announce the 3rd Annual History Research Symposium (HRS) at Tuskegee University, on February 14-15, 2019. This year’s theme is: "We Wear the Mask: Black Cultural Representation, Reproduction, and Redemption." The conference wishes to engage the scholarly community in a discourse on identity, cultural traditions, and representation across the African Diaspora.
Tuskegee University has a long history of promoting, preserving and disseminating Black history and culture. The History Program aims to re-center Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) as grounds of rigorous historical inquiry, research, and community engagement. The symposium seeks to build strong networks of aspiring students and promote professional training, historical competency and intellectual collaboration.G
HRS encourages students, scholars, and community members to submit abstracts. We also welcome submissions from other disciplines such as Africana Studies, Culture Studies, Gender Studies, Social Sciences, Behavioral Sciences, and Museum Studies.
Individual Proposal Submissions: Notice of intent should be submitted as soon as possible. One-page abstracts (roughly 200-words) are due by November 15, 2018, and should include paper title, institution, name, field of study, and contact information. Send proposals to HRS@tuskegee.edu.
HRS will host a paper prize contest. Participants who are interested in participating in the contest should submit their full papers (15-20 pages), by December 15, 2018.
Session Proposal Submissions: Notice of intent should be submitted as soon as possible. 2-page abstracts (roughly 500-words) are due by November 15, 2018, and should include panel title, institutions, panelists names, fields of study, and individual contact information. The abstract should also include a brief description of each topic/paper presentation. Send proposals to HRS@tuskegee.edu.
For more information, you can email: HRS@tuskegee.edu
