We are excited to announce the 4th Annual History Research Symposium (HRS) at Tuskegee University, on February 12-14, 2020. This year’s theme is: "Remembrance, Renaissance, & Revolution: The Continued Struggle for Freedom." 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.
HRS is a history conference and 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.
A Call for Proposals flyer is attached to this e-mail. We hope that you pass this information along to students and colleagues at your college/university/community and to others who may be interested in attending.
