Hi all — wanted to forward an online symposium registration and conference opportunity for anyone interested in the academic world surrounding the African diaspora!
I attended this conference in person my senior year of college for their 1619 commemoration in Williamsburg, VA, and was exposed to some of the most brilliant scholarship around the world in Diaspora Studies. ASWAD is a pretty incredible organization headed up by a former professor and mentor of mine, Dr. Robert Trent Vinson, who is currently chairing the University of Virginia’s Carter G Woodson Institute for African American Studies.
If you have any questions, definitely feel free to reach out, but I cannot say enough good things about my experience. I was admitted freely as a student of Dr. Vinson’s during my college attendance, and I can look into any potential opportunities for interested peers with resource limitations!
Anyways here you go! : ASWAD Registration
