PCA/ACA

African-American Culture

Primary tabs

We encourage the submission of topics on African American and African-derived performance and culture – especially those submissions examining current events that inform and shape communities today.

 

  • Submit an abstract or full paper. Undergraduate submissions are encouraged.
  • 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. 
  • Should you or any of your colleagues be interested in submitting a proposal or have any questions, please contact:

To submit your panel or presentation, go to http://ncp.pcaaca.org and follow the instructions for creating an account and making your submission. All submissions must be made through the conference submission site. For individual papers, please submit a title and 100-word abstract.  For themed paper sessions, presenters must enter their own presentation and the proposed chair (who organized the theme/group) should contact Gaynell Sherrod to assemble them into a panel.
