    We invite 250-word abstracts for papers that examine the legacies, archives, and memories of slavery and Afro-diasporic afterlives across the global Hispanophone and archipelagic Mediterranean, Pacific, and Atlantic worlds. The panel also seeks to establish connections between these different regions and/or follow the moment of racialized actors and agents.
    Topics may include, among others:

    • Alternative memories of slavery
    • Application of concepts such as Refugees/Migrants/Diasporic identities/Transnationalism
    • Spanish as lingua franca and circulation of ideas
    • The politics of memory, memorialization, and mitification
    • Diasporic racialization and the making of racial identities
    • Erasure/forgetting/unmaking of race in transnational and/or diasporic perspectives

    Deadline for Submission: March 15, 2021
