I am writing to you on behalf of the Roundtable for Black Feminist and Womanist Theory, which will be holding its first meeting this upcoming fall. The mission of the Roundtable is to unite scholars across disciplines who are working to highlight the intellectual contributions of Black women and non-men throughout the African diaspora. This space functions as a working space for scholars of various levels to receive feedback on their projects that will enrich the Black feminist and womanist traditions.While this space is not closed to Black women and non-men, it is expected that scholars focus on these groups in their submitted works-in-progress.
I would like to invite faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students to submit abstracts for our first annual conference which will take place from September 10th-12th, 2020 at Penn State, University Park. Please find our call for abstracts attached. A detailed concept note will also soon be posted on our website. The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended to May 17th. For more information you can contact me at email@example.com. Please send to any other colleagues, departments, or students who might be interested in this opportunity!
