Black Knowledges - Black Struggles -Civil Rights: 

 The conference explores the connection of African American diasporic knowledges and struggles with and their impact on transatlantic social movements, literatures and cultures in all their incarnations.

Historically, Enlightenment ideas, which have been traditionally  cast as the originator of emancipation movements on a worldwide   scale, have been compromised by their implication in colonization,  slavery, slave trading and the emergence and intensification of   Western racism. Since the Middle Passage, various forms of Black  knowledge have provided vantage points for reading transatlantic   histories and cultures in an alternative light: to look at the  modern world through lessons from Haiti, the Black Seminoles, or  the quilombo of Palmares, instead of primarily through the ideas of Voltaire or Hegel opens up different ways of conceptualizing   knowledge, humanism, freedom and civil rights.

The Eighth Biennial Conference of the Collegium of African American  Research (CAAR) in Bremen, Germany, March 25 ?29, 2009 explores   the global epistemological, political, literary, and cultural   impact of the many forms of African American diasporic knowledges  and struggles and their enduring transnational manifestations.  Underscoring the ubiquity of the cross-fertilization of Black  knowledge and Black struggles in a larger global arena, the > conference will consider the various connections forged through  production of knowledge, like the long lasting effects of African > American movements for Civil Rights on Black cultural production,  and on transatlantic social movements, literatures and cultures in > general. It will illuminate this nexus in all its incarnations? 

historically have expanded to include the Indian subcontinent, and, more recently, to reach other Asian countries like Japan and China, mainly through the spread of Black popular culture, the conference will extend its focus beyond a rigidly defined Atlantic milieu.  As a forum for much needed dialogues/interactions between various  disciplines and national and continental affiliations, this CAAR  conference encourages contributions that would stimulate  collaboration and exchanges between Black European Studies and  African American Studies, and between African American Studies and  a range of other disciplines on an international scale. Viewing   African American Studies as a global discipline, we invite proposals for panels, workshops and papers that address the diverse   kinds of mutual recognition, negotiation and coalition-building of  global African American agency, as well as antagonistic encounters  borne by racism, class structures and misogyny. In order to counter > both the backlash against multiculturalism and civil rights in the US and the recent reconfiguration of Europe as a fortress of the > West against so called invasion from the South and East, many > telling cases in point might be addressed
