Program Edits Deadline & Sign Up Reminder - September 19, 2017

Thank you to everyone who has reviewed the online draft program for the 2017 biennial conference, "African/Diasporic Futures: Re-Envisioning Power, Interventions, Imaginations and Belonging," to ensure your paper and/or panel details are correct. If you have not already done so, please check the ASWAD Draft Program  for your paper and/or panel placement. Please send your requests for edits to no later than Wednesday, September 20, 2017. After this date, we will not be able to accommodate your revision requests.

While there will be no changes to the program schedule, we will make changes/corrections to panel and paper titles, the order of panel presentations, and the names and titles of individual papers and presenters. Please note as per letters of acceptance, prospective presenters who did not confirm their participation by paying conference registration by June 30th were removed from the program. Also, in circumstances where more than one presenter from an accepted panel withdrew, the Program Committee shifted remaining papers to other sessions.

Also, you can find sign-up forms for tours, excursions, and Mentoring Workshops on the ASWAD membership site: Conference-Tours-Workshops Sign Ups.

Please note this site is the same site where you paid your membership dues and is different from where you will view the draft program.  There is a dedicated link for Conference Events/Workshops.

Registration for tours and workshops must be completed no later than October 13, 2017.

On behalf of the 2017 conference program committee and the ASWAD Executive Board, thank you for supporting ASWAD and its upcoming conference.  We look forward to greeting you in Seville
