During the 2017-2018 academic year, William & Mary commemorates 50 years of African Americans in Residence. As a result, The Lemon Project: A Journey of Reconciliation and the 50-Year Commemoration of African Americans in Residence Committee are teaming up for “Desegregating Higher Education in Virginia: William and Mary in Historical Context.” As the first three women to live on campus at William & Mary were moving in, other colleges and universities in Virginia and elsewhere were experiencing similar change. What were their stories? What was their process? How did they keep moving forward?

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Though often represented as a marginalized or isolated region of the Francophone world, on the one hand, as well as distinct from the rest of the United States, on the other, Louisiana has been situated for more than three centuries at the crossroads of countless cultural, linguistic, and institutional exchanges. Alongside these realities highlighted in recent historiography, contemporary efforts to promote French and Francophones cultures of Louisiana have benefited from numerous international partnerships. In order to explore the international relations and transnational dynamics that have shaped Louisiana from the colonial period until now, we are pleased to accept abstracts for presentations relevant to Francophone Louisiana.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 17, 2017

In 2016, a viral The New York Times op-ed by political scientist Mark Lilla called for “The End of Identity Liberalism,” the political formation putatively at the root of Donald Trump’s election. The author claimed the U.S. must enter a “post-identity liberalism” in order to avoid the rampant fascism of modernity. He emphasizes majoritarian logics in order for progressives to center “the issues that affect a vast majority of them” as focusing on identity “can drive potential allies away,” providing the example of bathrooms being tiresome for (cisgender) voters to hear about.
