SERSAS Fall Conference, Call for Papers
September 3 @ 5:00 pm
Call for Papers: Southeast Regional Seminar in African Studies (SERSAS) & Southeast Africanist Network (SEAN) will host their Fall Conference, 8-9 October 2021, at the College of Charleston. The conference is co-sponsored by the African Studies Program, College of Charleston; African Studies Center, UNC-Chapel Hill; and the Center for African Studies, University of Florida. This Fall’s Conference Theme is Black Lives: Global Structures of Inequality and Justice.
More Information: Global inequities in terms of wealth, health care, and resource distribution, continuing questions of justice and identity, and the disproportionate impact of climate change on the global south, have exposed the connections and entanglements between justice, distribution, and civil rights. This fall’s conference, Black Lives: Global and Local Structures of Inequality and Justice, seeks to explore the structures that have shaped and continue to shape the lives of the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora. This fall’s conference gives preference to research that emphasizes African initiative in seeking justice and creating change in local, regional, and global contexts. Taking place in Charleston South Carolina, a site rich in African American history, this fall’s meeting will occur in tandem with the College of Charleston’s World Affairs Signature Series, “Black Lives.” Other events in this series include one honoring the victims of the Emmanuel A.M.E church shootings in 2015.
Paper Submission Deadline: September 3, 2021
