RENCONTRES AVEC JAMES BALDWIN
(Hommage à James Baldwin pour son quatre-vingtième anniversaire)

Le 2 août 2004, James Arthur Baldwin aurait célébré ses quatre-vingts
ans. A l'occasion de cet anniversaire, la revue LISA de l'Equipe de
recherche "Littérature et civilisation des pays de langue anglaise" de
l'Université de Caen souhaiterait lui rendre hommage en réunissant des
textes abordant le thème de la rencontre - réelle, virtuelle ou
symbolique - avec l'écrivain. En donnant priorité aux rencontres
effectuées dans un contexte français (pris au sens large), ce recueil
de textes se voudra témoignage de la vivacité du legs baldwinien dans
notre pays.

CFP: Rage, Resistance, and Representation: Women in U. S. Race Riots

Atlanta, GA. Washington, DC. Wilmington, NC. Chicago, Philadelphia,
Ocoee, New York, Tulsa: cities – among many others – that have been home
to race riots in the United States over the nineteenth and twentieth
centuries. This collection of essays will investigate the various active
roles women, and particularly minority women, played in such riots,
paying specific attention to exposing the cultural fallacy of women’s
passivity in the public realm of violence, especially in relation to the
construction of racial identity and cultural race relations.
