> North Carolina Central University invites proposals for the third  
> annual African Diaspora Studies Symposium, to be held March 19-20,  
> 2011. The theme for this year is "Conspicuously Unseen: Invisibility  
> and Denial in Diasporic Communities."  The symposium seeks to  
> explore the ways that Diasporic communities see themselves and the  
> ways that they are perceived by the dominant cultures that surround  
> them. Special attention will be given to the Afro-Latin American,  
> Afro-European, and Afro-Asian experience, though any topic within  
> the Diaspora will be considered.  In keeping with the breadth of the  
> Liberal Arts, we seek proposals for papers, panels, performances  
> (music or theater), film, and graphic art from any branch of  
> Diaspora studies. The symposium has typically brought together  
> scholars, activists, and artists, representing disciplines as varied  
> as Public Health and performance art. We look forward to continuing  
> this tradition, bringing together academics, community members, and  
> creative artists to engage with each other on issues facing the  
> African Diaspora and African Diaspora Studies. North Carolina  
> Central University, located in the heart of Durham, was founded in  
> 1910 and is the first state-supported liberal arts institution to  
> serve the black community. The University prides itself on its  
> relations with the Durham community, and the NCCU African Diaspora  
> Studies Symposium encourages input and participation from both  
> academics and the community.
