International Gullah Geechee & African Diaspora (IGGAD) Conference 2020
Without Borders: Tracing the Cultural, Archival & Political African Diaspora

Conference: March 4-7, 2020
Location: Coastal Carolina University, Conway, SC
Deadline: October 15 (rolling notification)

The Charles W. Joyner Institute for Gullah and African Diaspora Studies and the
Athenaeum Press at Coastal Carolina University invite abstracts, poster
sessions, lightning talks and panel proposals for their second International
Gullah Geechee and African Diaspora Conference (IGGAD). This year's
theme "Without Borders: Tracing the Cultural, Archival and Political African
Diaspora" focuses on the political, technological and cultural encodings and
decodings of the African Diaspora in archives, public interpretation,
performance and community organizing. We encourage submissions that present new
works, projects, analysis and critiques of public interpretations and
performances, as well as research in areas such as Afrofuturism, gender studies,
Pan-Africanism, theories of race and politics, and Gullah Geechee cultures as
well as other topics within the heritage and culture of the global African
diaspora. Of special importance is our conference's emphasis on the community-
based participatory model, which recognizes the importance of cultural
practitioners and community participation to the success of the conference. To
this end, the last day of our conference is a public-facing community day that
will be held in the historic City of Conway, South Carolina, near the Myrtle
Beach and Georgetown areas. This day will combine workshops, performances and
film screenings with project presentations and short lectures. Submitters should
indicate interest in giving a public-facing presentation on their initiative or
project when submitting their proposals.

The Joyner Institute and Athenaeum Press are also forming a peer-reviewed
research journal. Research presented at the conference may be selected for
publication in the inaugural issue (to be launched in 2021).

To accommodate our international participants and funding deadlines, we will
have a rolling notification of decisions for acceptance. Our call will close on
October 15, with a deadline for notification on November 1.
