In this timely event, scholars of African American studies and gender/sexuality studies present their innovative research. Panelists engage in a moderated roundtable discussion of how their research reflects new directions in the field of African American studies as it celebrates its 50th year.

Please note that the event will feature research presentations by the visiting speakers from approximately 1:00-2:30pm; we will then take a short break, after which the speakers will participate in a roundtable discussion moderated by Dr. Danielle Smith, Director of the Renée Crown University Honors Program and Professor of African American Studies. The roundtable will begin at approximately 2:45pm, so those unable to attend the entire event are welcome to attend either the first or second portion.

This event is jointly supported by the College of Arts & Sciences Ray Smith Symposium and the Syracuse Symposium.
