ASWAD’s 10th Biennial Conference
Will Be Held at William & Mary
from 5-10 November 2019

 

“Stay Tuned” for September CFP Announcement

On November 5-9, 2019, the College of William & Mary will host the Tenth Biennial Conference of the Association for the Study of the Worldwide African Diaspora (ASWAD). The year 2019 marks the four hundredth anniversary of the origins of slavery in what became the United States with the arrival of approximately twenty Africans who landed on the nearby shores of the James River in August 1619. While the geographical proximity of Williamsburg, Virginia highlights this important event, the arrival of these Africans reflected the deep diasporic dimensions that already connected–and continue to link–Africa, Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, and Asia. In that spirit, this conference will feature cutting edge scholarship, cultural events, film festivals and excursions to local historical sites that will highlight and celebrate the global dimensions of the African Diaspora and the centrality of black people worldwide to the making of the modern world.

Stay tuned for the Call for Papers in September 2018!!!
