Interdisciplinary Conference on Race (Virtual Meeting)

Research and Teaching on Race

November 12, 2021

Organized by the Department of History and Anthropology

Call for Papers:

This virtual conference for the Monmouth University community is a precursor to a full conference expected to take place in person in Fall 2022. The present conference is a mix of the well-known Interdisciplinary Conference on Race and Works in Progress, and aims to bring together scholars from multiple disciplinary perspectives to broadly explore research, teaching, and community-based projects on race in a virtual format. Proposals on work in progress or completed projects are welcome. The theme of the virtual conference is research, teaching, and community-based projects on race, and we encourage interdisciplinary work.

The Monmouth University race conference was founded in 2008 by Dr. Julius Adekunle and Dr. Hettie V. Williams. This conference has brought together scholars from more than fifteen U.S. states, four continents, and twelve nations. Robin D.G. Kelley, Tera Hunter, David Roediger, and Jonathan Holloway have all previously served as keynote speakers for this event.

The Interdisciplinary Conference on Race program committee eagerly invites proposals from students, scholars, researchers, artists, and teachers from Monmouth University on topics related to race.


  • Concise presentations and discussion of individual or co-presented projects involving research, teaching, and community-based work on race

Proposals should be sent to by September 17, 2021 and should include: an abstract between 100 and 200 words, a title, and author name(s), affiliation(s), and preferred contact information.
