About the Symposium
The special focus of the 2015 Media & Civil Rights History Symposium is on the role of media in black power struggles, in keeping with the Symposium’s first-ever theme: “Black Power, Political Imagination, and the Media.” While we welcome work that falls beyond the scope of the theme, we encourage scholars working in the topical area of black power studies to consider this theme as they prepare work to submit to the Symposium.
Call for Paper and Panel Proposals
We are accepting proposals for individual papers and panel sessions on all aspects of the historical relationship between media and civil rights and particularly on the Symposium theme of “Black Power, Political Imagination, and the Media.” We encourage submissions from graduate students.
Submissions are all online at this site. The deadline for paper and panel proposal submission is Nov. 1, 2014.
A complete proposal will include the following:
- An abstract of no more than 500 words, for both papers and panels. A one-page curriculum vitae for each paper author or panelist.
- Complete contact information for each paper author or panelist, including email addresses.
- Panel proposals should provide a panel title and indicate the panel moderator.
Deadline: Nov. 1, 2014. Late submissions will not be considered.
