CFP:The Language of Black Women Writers: Power, Identity, and Relationships

South Atlantic Modern Languages Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

In her 1977 essay “Toward a Black Feminist Criticism,” Barbara Smith says, “The use of Black women’s language and cultural experience in books by Black women about Black women results in a miraculously rich coalescing of form and content and also takes their writing far beyond the confines of white/male literary structures.” Smith uses “black women’s language” to make the case that a black feminist framework would have much in common with a rapidly expanding black women’s literary tradition. An unending source for “cultural manifestations” of black womanhood, literature from black women has a critical value outside of white/male literary structures.

Monday, April 15, 2019

This special session invites papers that explore the countervailing, and occasionally contradictory, double meanings obtaining in our notion of the “public intellectual” today. This session is especially interested in papers that comment on the figure of the public intellectual by thinking beyond the limits of the university and the academic profession, as traditionally “licensed” intellectual spaces and modes, and consider new networks and formations of intellectual affiliation, movement, and struggle that have emerged with the generalization of social media platforms and digital publishing venues (i.e. twitter, reddit, etc.), and especially  in the wake of the election of 2016.

People, images, forms, symbols and stories in global flows

In the global era, the transformation of humanity is intrinsically connected to the intensification of transit of people on the surface of the earth — flows of migrants, tourists, professional and educational flows etc. — and simultaneously to transit of cultural elements — flows of images, forms, symbols, stories, codes, formats etc. — occurring in media culture.
