seem appropriate to produce an anthology that evaluate the multifaceted
influences and implications of Oprah.

Special issue of Current Writing on Paul Gilroy and 'The Black Atlantic:
Modernity and double consciousness'

The publication of Paul Gilroy's 'The Black Atlantic: Modernity and double
consciousness' ten years ago made a major contribution to the reconfiguration
of the study of black literatures and cultures. Since then several scholars
have engaged with the ways in which the Atlantic divides and connects Africa,
Europe, and the Americas; with notions of black modernity; and with the
intricacies of double consciousness.

LISA E-Journal is inviting contributions to an issue on Biography versus
Fiction: the Value of Testimony to be published in June 2004. This theme of
reflection focuses on the value and authenticity of historical testimony
when it is conveyed by any kind of subjective literary form, whether it be
the autobiographical genre stemming from personal experience or the
subjective interpretation of this testimony through fictional literary
works. The field of study discussed is that of American XIXth and XXth
century cultural studies, directly linked with minorities and written
testimonies coming from ethnic groups. In this domain, more than in any

Toni Morrison and the Bible:

Proposals are requested for a contracted collection of essays on Toni
Morrison and the Bible. Papers may deal with any of Morrison's texts
and approach her use of the Bible from the standpoints of Judaism or
Christianity as well as from other religions/practices that may
intersect with or challenge what might be considered the dominant
theological discourse. I am particularly looking for a broad range in
topics, both in the approach taken and inthe texts the essays treat.
Ideally, I would like the collection to include some solidly theoretical
essays as well as some more traditional pieces of literary criticism.
