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.

solicited for inclusion in a collection of essays tentatively entitled
Reading Contemporary African Poetry .The book is to bring together
innovative but readable explorations of recent African poetry of English
expression.

influences and implications of Oprah.

Call for Papers

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.
