CFP MLA 2022: The Black Mediterranean (MLA - 6–9 January 2022: Washington)


Proposals are sought for The Black Mediterranean, a Guaranteed Forum Session sponsored by CLCS Mediterranean with N. Michelle Murray, presiding.

The subordinations of racial disparity, conflict, and death are persistent traits of the Mediterranean and its discursive existence. How have scholars contributed to the theorization and characterization of the “Black Mediterranean”?

Please submit 300-word proposals by March 15, 2021 to Yasser Elhariry (yasser.elhariry@dartmouth.edu).
