From March 13-16, Agnes Scott College will host the 10th bi-annual conference of the Collegium for African American Research (CAAR). The conference will bring over 200 international scholars to campus, who will discuss and present research projects on a wide range of topics connected to the history and culture of African people.
One of five keynote addresses will directly address the experience of people of African descent in Germany. On Saturday, March 16, 10:45am-12:00pm, Rosemarie Pena, director of the Black German Heritage & Research Association, will deliver her keynote address “Staatenlos: Connecting Within the Margins.” In addition to this talk, there are several other presentations connected to German history and race.
For those ASC faculty and students away for Spring Break, Rosemarie Pena has agreed to stay for an additional day and deliver a shortened version and discussion of her keynote speech during a luncheon on Monday, March 18, from noon to 1:30pm in the South Dining Room in Evans Dining Hall.
