Call For Papers: Connecting the Community Regional Conference

Posted on: Sep 16, 2005 @ 12:52:00 pm

"So in a raw, bustling frontier, the experiment of self-government for Negroes was tried. White Maitland and Negro Eatonville have lived side by side for fifty-six years without a single instance of enmity. The spirit of the founders has reached beyond the grave."
Zora Neale Hurston, Dust Tracks on a Road The University of Central Florida Libraries and the African American Studies Program invite proposals for individual papers, complete panels and roundtable discussions on Zora Neale Hurston, Andre Smith, and the formation of African American communities in Central Florida, especially Eatonville. We encourage papers that examine the idea of space and place and racial and ethnic boundaries in community formation within the context of the American South, the Caribbean and/or the Atlantic World. For more information on the exhibit or conference, visit our website: Connecting the Community: Maitland and Eatonville.
