I am reaching out to LLC Francophone because we welcome contributions from scholars in fields beyond early modern French—including Black, Indigenous, and Francophone studies as well as history—who may engage the early modern in some way—such as colonial encounters, critical race, memory, resistance, or slavery. I want to especially draw three sessions to your attention:
Roundtable 1: Race in Early Modern France
Roundtable 2: Race, Diversity and Inclusion in Early Modern French Studies: Where are we and why? Where do we go from here?
Pedagogy Session 2: Teaching in a Time of Persistent Systemic Racism and Racially-Motivated Violence
Proposals for 5-minute interventions (150-words, English or French) are due by August 31 to SE172020@gmail.com. Other opportunities for participation include circuit sessions, work-in-progress workshops, reading groups, and asynchronous projects.
