Call for Papers Due Date:

92nd Annual Convention
Charlotte, North Carolina
October 3 - 7, 2007
"From Slavery to Freedom: Africans in the Americas"
The Association for the Study of African American Life and History is
soliciting papers for its 92nd Annual Conference. Since the theme focuses
broadly on the experiences of Africans in the Americas “from slavery to
freedom,” submissions are encouraged that discuss the Atlantic slave
trade, slavery, resistance, abolition movements, emancipation, and the
development of  “New World” communities in all parts of the African
Diaspora.  Individuals interested in submitting proposals should give
particular thought to comparative perspectives on slavery and race. The
theme will also allow for broad and varied discussions on reparations and
the meaning of freedom and citizenship for Africans throughout the
Americas.  

ASALH invites scholars from all disciplines to make presentations in
Charlotte on African and African American life, history, thought, and
culture from the Atlantic coast of West Africa to the Caribbean Islands,
Latin America, and the United States.  Preference will be given to session
proposals that address the specific conference theme; other submissions,
however, are invited and will be gladly accepted.  ASALH supports and
values all scholarship on peoples of African descent.

ASALH will begin accepting proposals on October 31, 2006.  
The deadline for submissions will be May 31, 2007.
All proposals must be submitted electronically to ASALH.  For
