CALL FOR PAPERS

BLACKS AND ASIANS ENCOUNTERS THROUGH TIME AND SPACE

AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

BOSTON UNIVERSITY

APRIL 12-14, 2002

The African American Studies Program at Boston University invites
proposals for individual papers and complete panels on all aspects of the
global encounter of peoples of Asian and peoples of African descent from
antiquity to the present. We seek to convene an interdisciplinary
international assembly of scholars interested in exploring how the peoples
of Africa and Asia and their Diaspora have interacted with each other and
impacted the development of the modern world.

We welcome proposals on all aspects of this historic encounter including
presentations that explore the social and cultural construction of
collective identities such as Asian, Black, Japanese, and Indian as well as
those that examine the nature of interethnic, interracial, intercultural,
and international exchanges among blacks and Asians. Proposals may focus on
a single geographic area, such as Japan or the United States, may be
comparative in perspective, or may adopt a global framework.

Please send a 250 word abstract together with a current curriculum vita
to: Ronald K. Richardson, Director,
African American Studies,
Boston University,
138 Mountfort Street,
Brookline, MA. 02446.
You may submit by email at lokenkimbu.edu.

To be considered proposals must be received no later than October 15, 2001.
