Mohamed A.G. Bakhit and Nicki Kindersley are seeking scholars for the ECAS 2019 panel 'Re-making citizenship: new forms of social security and refuge beyond the state'.

CFPs: Panel on Black Resistance and the Deceased for OAH 2020

I am organizing a panel on African American resistance and the deceased that will be submitted as a proposal for the 2020 Annual Meeting of the Organization of American Historians (held in Washington, DC from April 2-4).  Tentatively titled “Beyond the Grave: African American Resistance and the Deceased,” the panel explores the various ways African Americans have conceptualized, utilized, and produced spaces to reflect on the deceased in their efforts for full equality.
