The Department of Humanities at Paine College is requesting proposals for the annual Conference on the Harlem Renaissance to be held on our historic campus in Augusta, GA. The theme for 2013 is "Midwives and Mavericks: Architects, Artists, and Critics of the Renaissance." The focus for presentations will center on the literature, history, philosophy, art, and music, as well as inter- and cross-disciplinary approaches to the lives, work, and impact of a variety of architects, artists, and critics of the Harlem Renaissance Era.
