State University of New York College at Cortland
Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies
The Annual NYASA Conference will be held at SUNY Cortland this year April 4-5, 2014. NYASA stands for the New York Africana Studies Association. Founded in 1967, NYASA offers many opportunities for leaders and educators to speak about realities of the Africana world. Here, students can interact with professionals to discuss newly found research and discuss diversity.
This year, the theme is "Praxis Africana: (Re)framing the Arts, Sciences, Culture and Community Engagement."
This conference will serve as a platform for framing or reframing the theories, precepts and practices of the field in order to formulate effective policy goals for sustaining the Africana world. SUNY Cortland, the Department of Africana Studies and the Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies (CGIS) hosts of the NYASA 39th annual conference, invite you to the historic campus in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of New York State.
The deadline for papers has now passed, so anyone interested will need to wait until the program is ready. Please visit http://www.nyasa.org/conference/index.html for more information on registration. Early registration ends March 10.
