The Houston Global Health Collaborative was born in recognition of the many impressive service, research, and educational opportunities within the Texas Medical Center (TMC) member institutions and across Houston. The collaborative  desires to promote these efforts while expanding the possibilities for new ones, by connecting those interested in or actively pursuing global health research, service, and education.

You will hear inspiring stories of efforts to improve the health of the world’s most vulnerable people. You will learn what academic institutions within the TMC are doing to train tomorrow’s global health leaders. And you will discover the latest groundbreaking research findings by students and faculty, revealing new pathways to promote health and prevent disease in Houston and around the globe.

44th Annual Conference of the African Literature Association

May 23-26, 2018 at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC, USA

The Graduate Student Caucus of the African Literature Association (GSCALA) invites graduate students to submit an abstract for the upcoming 44th Annual Conference of the African Literature Association, to be held May 23-26, 2018 at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, DC, USA. This year’s conference theme is “The Environments of African Literature.” The theme invites participants to address the multiple environments – physical, institutional, ideological, symbolic, discursive, cultural, and technological (among others) – that affect the production, dissemination and reception of African literature. We also invite papers which address the ways in which African literary texts reflect on such environments and the challenges and promises they present. However, papers on all other aspects of African and diasporic literature, art, and film are also welcome. For more information on the upcoming conference.

Please submit your abstract of up to 2000 characters (spaces included) for individual papers and/or panels by February 16, 2018.
