The Lapidus Center for the Historical Analysis of Transatlantic Slavery at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture invites submissions for its second biennial conference, “Enduring Slavery: Resistance, Public Memory, and Transatlantic Archives.” The conference will be held at the Schomburg Center in New York City on October 10-12, 2019. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2019. 

The Lapidus Center seeks proposals from scholars whose work offers new insights on transatlantic slavery and its afterlives. Topics of interest to the 2019 program committee include: rebellion and resistance among the enslaved, the political economy of slavery and its relationship to capitalism, debates over public memory about slavery, university reckonings with their slavery pasts, gendered aspects of slavery, medicine and healing, digital humanities, and depictions of slavery in popular culture. Innovative papers that explore slavery in transnational contexts are particularly welcome.

Please email an individual abstract (no more than 300 words) or a 3-person panel abstract (no more than 800 words) and a two-page CV for each participant to lapiduscenter@nypl.org by February 1, 2019. Decisions will be announced in April 2019.
