The workshop is a grad-student-led space for junior scholars whose work spans various geographies related to Africa and its diaspora. This forum primarily comprises doctoral students in the History Department at NYU but is also open to students outside the department and the History field. Generally, students present projects related to their Ph.D. research, including dissertation chapters and journal article submissions. Still, the space will be available to include more than just dissertation chapters to accommodate better the needs of first to third-years and MA students.

Ideally, there will be four sessions in the Fall semester (see schedule below), and each date would have one person present a piece of writing to the group, with the rest providing critique like a standard writing group. We ask that all papers for the presentations be sent to the group at least one week before the meeting date to give everyone adequate time to prepare and that you cap submissions at 40 pages.

The workshop forum is structured with the presenter’s needs in mind, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in presenting or have any questions about your potential fit. Please indicate if you are interested in presenting by completing this form.
