Call for papers: 

We are considering proposals for sessions organized around a theme, special panels and/or individual papers.  Sessions are scheduled in 1-½ hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session.  Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes.  We encourage the submission of topics on African American and African-derived performance and culture.

For individual papers, please submit a title and 100-word abstract. For themed paper sessions, presenters must enter her/his own presentation and the chair (who organized the theme/group) should contact Gaynell (Elgie) Sherrod (egsherrod@vcu.edu) to assemble them into a panel. You should also contact Gaynell Sherrod for help in submitting roundtable discussions.
