Celebrating Black History Month (3 of 4)

15 Feb Celebrating Black History Month (3 of 4)

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH®) is the premier Black Heritage learned society with a strong network of national and international branches and partners.  The mission of the ASALH® is to promote, research, preserve, interpret and disseminate information about Black life, history and culture to the global community.

In September 2021, the ASALH will hold the 106th Annual Meeting and Conference.  The Academic Program Committee seeks a diverse slate of presenters and panels representing a variety of professional and institutional backgrounds, perspectives, and voices. They are interested in detailed, comprehensive, and descriptive proposals that outline the theme, scope, and aim of participants. The committee particularly seeks presentations that probe the traditional fields of economic, political, intellectual, and cultural history; the established fields of urban, race, ethnic, labor, and women’s/gender history as well as southern and western history; along with the rapidly expanding fields of sexuality, LGBT, and queer history; environmental and public history; African American intellectual history; literature; and the social sciences.

They encourage proposals from scholars working across a variety of temporal, geographical, thematic, and topical areas in Black history, life and culture. They seek to foster a space of inclusion in the ASALH program and encourage submissions from anyone interested in presenting including: historians, students, new professionals, first-time presenters, activists, and practitioners from allied professions.
