Panel Forum for #AAIHS2019 Conference

The committee for the 2019 AAIHS annual conference recently released the CFP for submissions related to the theme, Black InternationalismThen and Now. As we explain in the CFP, we are happy to accept individual paper submissions but will give preference to those who submit full panels. In order to help facilitate this process, we want to use this post as a forum to bring scholars together who are interested in similar topics.

If you are interested in forming a panel, please add a comment below with your paper and/or panel idea(s). Be sure to include your email address so that others can easily reach you to follow-up. Also, if you are willing to chair or comment on potential panels you see listed here, please indicate that as well. For those who have already submitted individual papers, feel free to use this forum to form a panel and we can withdraw the individual paper submission. Thank you for your interest in the AAIHS and our fourth annual conference. We look forward to reading your proposals!

      • Hi Adam and Maria,
        I’ve actually published on the Cuban Anti-Slavery Committee, so I’d love to work together on a panel on international/transnational Black abolitionism with you! If you’re interested in collaborating, send me an email at!

      • Hi Adam, Maria and RJ

        Realise I may be late in entering the conversation here, but, if you’re able to stretch the time frame, I’m hoping to write a paper on formations of African-American identity through British travel and performance at the end of the nineteenth century! Please get in touch if you think this could be relevant and have space on your panel. My email is


  • I would like to form a panel to exhibit the critial role black women played in the American continent from Canada to the Patagonia.

    • Hi Maria. Would you extend this panel to include South America? I would like to present on Black women intellectuals from Brazil.

  • Anyone interested in forming a panel on Africana religions and Black Internationalism?

    • Yes!! I just presented some work in progress on this theme at the Caribbean Philosophical Association. I would like to join you on this panel.

      • Yes, I’m working on radical black religion and anti-slavery in early nineteenth-century Jamaica and US.

  • Hi everyone? Would anyone be interested in putting together a panel on Black internationalism and print culture?

    • Hi Marina, I am interested in your preposition. My current work deal with book clubs and intellectual circles in the south of African continet conected within the Black Atlantic and Europe . I am going to email you soon. Regards. My email adress:

  • I’d like to form or join a panel that deals with Black internationalism in Africa and/or among people living on the African continent. My own paper will consider the early development of a black international identity in Ghana (the Gold Coast) in the nineteenth century. Please contact me at

  • I am interested in putting together a panel about black economic movements or black economic thought.

  • I’m interested in putting together a panel or joining an existing panel around black literary internationalism. Please feel free to email me at

  • We recently received the following two requests. Please contact the authors directly if you’re interested:

    -“I would like to form a panel to exhibit the critical role black women played in the American continent from Canada to the Patagonia.”– Maria Leta-Leroux (

    -“I am interested in organizing/joining a panel about black internationalism in the Caribbean/Atlantic world during the 20th century. My paper would specifically be about the possibilities/obstacles surrounding pan-African thought in the British Caribbean during the 1920s and 1930s.” — Brittany Merritt (

  • I’m planning on writing a paper on formations of African-American identity (especially in relation to nationality and conceptions of Americanness) through work and performance in Britain at the end of the 19th century. I look at a lot of different cultural actors so would be more than willing to narrow or broaden depending on how the panel shapes up. Panel could be perhaps be on performance, transatlantic travel or uses of nationality in internationalist movements. Open to discussion!

    My email is , please feel free to get in touch

  • So I am looking at anti-apartheid movements in Central Florida and its connections to the wider global anti-apartheid campaign in the 1980s. Particular focus will be paid to the issue of divestment, protests, and public action that called for institutions and city governments to remove themselves from financially supporting the apartheid government.
    I’m looking for panelist who would be able to present on other anti-apartheid protests in the United States and across the globe, or other examples of mass protests movements linked to the African continent.
    Please let me know if you are interested at

  • I’m planning to present a paper that revisits the question of the influence of the Harlem Renaissance on the Negritude movement. It focuses on Aimé Césaire’s translation of Richard Wright and looks at the way translation and “mistranslation” (as theorized by Brent Edwards) inform his Notebook of a Return to the Native Land. In doing so I try to uncover a translational and transnational poetics that can contribute to our understanding of black internationalism from a literary perspective.
    Please let me know if anyone is also interested in related topics and would like to form a panel together. Thanks!

  • I’m planning a paper that examines the brief period of opportunity covering Black benefits from Allotment policies in Indian Territory, the subsequent prospect of the state of Sequoyah (as “Liberia in the USA”), and finally, the exodus—on the eve of Oklahoma statehood—marked by Chief Sam’s Back-to-Africa campaign.
