October 25, 2022 | Rukshana Jalil Please join us at the Anna Julia Cooper Workshop in Black History, a works-in-progress workshop series in the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area convened by Quincy Mills, Associate Professor of History at the University of Maryland. For the 2022-23 academic year, the workshop will meet on Fridays, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. via Zoom. Our next meeting will be October 28th, where we will be discussing “By the Dexterous Use of Their Hatpins”: Black Women in the New York Garment Industry, 1900-1950, by Janette Gayle. The Anna Julia Cooper Workshop in Black History (The Cooper Workshop) features scholars from various disciplines researching and writing on Black history in the United States and the world. Cooper was the first African American woman to earn a doctorate in History, taught and mentored scores of students in D.C., and made invaluable contributions to Black intellectual life. The Cooper Workshop will feature scholars from various disciplines researching and writing on Black history in the United States and the world. We use “Black” to embrace the expansiveness of African America and attend to the long tradition of black internationalism. With the conviction that “all knowledge is incremental and collective,” as David Levering Lewis once wrote, the Workshop aims to foster a supportive space for the engagement and production of innovative scholarship in African American history. Six times per academic year, we will meet to discuss a colleague’s pre-circulated paper. Papers and the Zoom ID will be circulated one week in advance of the workshop. To join the listserv, email Derek Litvak, graduate coordinator, email@example.com or Quincy Mills, convener, firstname.lastname@example.org.
