In wake of the Trayvon Martin death and the court’s failure to convict his attacker, the National Council for Black Studies has selected the theme, “Challenging Racial Terrorism: Black Resistance and Community Building across the African Diaspora.” Submit a 150-400 word abstract for a panel (one for the panel subject and one for each of the 3 or more panelists) and for an individual proposal that’s not already part of a panel. For a roundtable discussion (at least 4 participants), submit a 500-word abstract for the discussion topic.  In addition to papers that explore the various contexts of Black life from the various disciplines, we are especially interested in presentations that explore the theme of physical, structural, psychological or discursive anti-black violence through the trans-disciplinary lens of Black/Africana Studies or any of its subfields, e.g., African literature, African American history, Black Women’s Studies, etc. Panels, individual presentations and roundtables should explore the experiences and perspectives of African people, locally, nationally, globally or comparatively from interdisciplinary frameworks rooted in the agency of African people. Of particular interest are presentations that approach the discipline of Africana/Black Studies using multi-layered frameworks and mixed methodologies that incorporate various combinations of class, gender, race, and sexuality, through the lens of Afrocentric, cross and multicultural, postmodernist, postcolonial, transnational, comparative, and diasporic interpretative schemes.
