This month the United States celebrates Black History Month. It also happens to be the month in which the 88th Academy Awards will take place. Given the controversy surrounding the lack of diversity at this year’s awards (with no black or minority actors nominated for awards in the acting categories), alongside the on-going tension fuelling the Black Lives Matter and #SayHerName campaigns, we want to hear how your research engages with issues surrounding race as a social construct and axes of oppression in the United States. Whether your research focus is historic or contemporary, we want to hear from you!
Submissions should be around 500 words and the deadline is the end of this month. We look forward to hearing from you!
