Submissions are solicited for the following panel, to be held at the NEMLA
Convention in Buffalo, NY, April 10-13, 2008. The submission deadline has
been extended to October 15, 2007

This panel focuses on representations of memory (both traumatic and
ordinary) in the contemporary African American novel or short story. The
goal of the panel is to gain new perspectives on the varied approaches
African American writers have taken to represent collective and private
recollections of historical events. At the same time, the panel encourages
comparisons of contemporary depictions of memory to classic portrayals such
as the slave narratives of Frederick Douglass or Harriet Jacobs.
