Below is information and a link for an exciting conference that I am helping with at my university, the INTERNATIONAL GULLAH GEECHEE AND AFRICAN DIASPORA CONFERENCE.  For more information – follow the link below. 

Tracing the African Diaspora: Places of Suffering, Resilience and Reinvention March 7-9, 2019 | Coastal Carolina University Conway, SC

Deadline for submissions is September 12

Submissions of performance are welcome, and I am curating a collection of short (9 minute performances).  If you would like to submit a proposal for a short performance (as opposed to a full-length paper or performance) just note that in the abstract.   I'm happy to answer questions about the short performances. 

Some info….

This year’s theme—Tracing the African Diaspora: Places of Suffering, Resilience and Reinvention—examines significant social, political and cultural experiences among African American communities and various African and Caribbean nations in the past, present and envisioned future.

The IGGAD conference will bring together academics and practitioners from interdisciplinary areas of study, who offer their ground-breaking contributions in the form of scholarly papers, films, performances and spoken poetry.
