Campus Map

About the Conference: Aligning with the mission of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship Program, the theme of this year’s MMUF Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference is “Decolonizing Knowledge, Transforming Academia.” While MMUF fellows are engaged in an array of research projects that are positioned within and across disciplinary fields, they are also transforming academia with their scholarship and with their lived experiences. Our conference centers collaborative knowledge production as a decolonial act. Fellows will present their MMUF research projects in multiple formats and engage in intellectual dialogue with peers, mentors and coordinators from across the region. 

Elias Rodriques, Assistant Professor of African American literature at Sarah Lawrence College and author of All the Water I Have Seen is Running, will present the keynote Friday evening, November 12.
