This is just a quick note to let you know about the first in a three-part series of free online events about African and Black Diaspora Romance, co-sponsored by DePaul University’s Center for Black Diaspora, the Center for Contemporary Literature and Culture, University of Birmingham, and the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance.
This first event is on Black Romance in the United States, and it includes a roundtable discussion on Friday, September 17 and a masterclass on pedagogy and scholarship on Black Romance the on Saturday the 18th. The others will be an event on Black Romance in the UK (October) and in Africa (November).
Eventbrite links to register for the roundtable and master class are pasted beneath the picture below. For information on the October and November events, stay tuned on Twitter to @blk_romance, @iaspr, and @jprstudies; I will also post news on the IASPR home page.
All the best,
