Meeting Description:

Topic: Politics and Black Popular Culture Symposium at UTSA

The 3rd annual African American Studies Symposium is a one-day conference April
16, 2010 at the University of Texas at San Antonio. This year, the theme is
'Politics and Black Popular Culture.' We especially encourage papers on
language, music, hair, art, film, Black popular literature, celebrities (e.g.,
Oprah, Tiger Woods, Wanda Sikes), technology, border crossing, health,
post-race/mixed-race identities, and political races (e.g., Texas Governor's
race, Houston Mayoral race, 2008 Presidential election).

Each talk is allotted 20 minutes per session with an additional 30 minutes for
discussion of the panel's papers. Abstracts should be written in English, and
they are expected to be up to 300 words. The abstract should have a title,
author's name, academic affiliation, and email address.

Abstracts are due Friday, January 8, 2010.

All abstracts should be emailed to Deborah.thomasutsa.edu.

Information about acceptances will be emailed by February 15, 2010 to all
scholars submitting an abstract.

Pre-registration required, but no registration fee.

Lunch will be provided for all speakers.
