CAS, the Department of History, and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies proudly present the 9th Annual Greater New York Area African History Workshop.

In past years, this workshop has always served as an inviting space where faculty and graduate students working on diverse historical topics can meet in a small setting. This year the organizers are reaching out to North African scholars and graduate students to paricipate, in the hope that a truly continental representation can be achieved. The format of the 8th annual workshop, hosted last March by Emmanuel Krieke and Zachary Kagan Guthrie at Princeton University, will be followed. There will be 4-5 sessions with 3-4 papers each.

The organizers welcome papers on all topics related to the history of any area of the continent of Africa and all historical periods. Please submit a proposal to gnyaahw9@rutgers.edu by January 31, 2015 that includes: (1) Your name, affiliation and a paper title; (2) a 250 world abstract; (3) a brief 1-2 pg c.v;(4) a 4-5 line paragraph describing your main research interests.
