The past several years have seen an explosion of exciting new perspectives on the subjects of race, gender, transnationalism, revolution, modernity, and colonialism. All of these themes have provided launching points for discussions and research about the lives and cultures of African descended peoples in the Diaspora. Some of the best new work on these topics is being done by advanced graduate students and scholars in the early stages of their careers. Taking place April 4-5, 2014, at Penn State,the workshop will provide a forum for innovative young scholars to discuss new projects on the breadth and impact of the African Diaspora with faculty and graduate students from the Departments of History, Comparative Literature, Philosophy, English, and African and African American Studies. Submissions will be pre-circulated to registered attendees and Penn State faculty, including select scholars chosen to provide detailed commentary on the papers.
