Black Poetry Out of the Archive


Because poetry written by blacks in the United States since the turn of
the 20^th Century has mainly been defined in terms of its oral or
experiential power, little attention has been given to the literate
aspects of that poetry's development, production, or publication.
Archives, of course, are the record of such literate processes, and many
of the archives of some of modernism and postmodernism's most important
black writers have yet to be adequately studied for the critical light
they can shed on the poetic work.

CFP: Disability in African Fiction


Proposals are invited for a panel on the above subject for presentation
at the forthcoming MLA convention in Chicago. While all approaches,
topics and methodologies are welcome, efforts should be made to
critically examine the concept of high or low culture in African
fiction, especially as it relates to disabled characters. The
question, Is There a High or Low Culture in an Oral Society will
hopefully be answered by examining, through selected fictional
portraits, how certain illnesses/handicaps reflect the perceptions of
individuals that are situated in high or low culture.=20
