Panel Topic: "'Writing' Wrongs: Notions of Justice and Civic Engagement in Multi-Ethnic American Literature"
I am seeking a couple of additional essays for an edited collection on Gender and Twenty-First Century Television. I am looking in particular for essays that address contemporary television narratives featuring people of color (such as Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, Empire, Jane, the Virgin, Vida, Atlanta, etc.) If you are interested, please send a 300-word abstract and brief bio to Amanda Konkle, email@example.com, by December 14.
This collection is being proposed to an interested peer-reviewed, open access, university-affiliated press.
I have copied the original call below:

“Unsettling Cather: Differences and Dislocations”
June 17–21, 2019 | Shenandoah University, Winchester, Virginia
Call for Proposals
"Unsilencing Black Sexuality in the African Diaspora" This is a call for papers that offers analysis of Black sexuality studies in Africa and the African diaspora. Essays may address any time period or geographical region. Those that focus on any form of art by Black artists, including film, literature, song, drama/theater, and visual art are particularly welcome. Studies of historical figures are also encouraged. Some topics to consider: How have Black people’s depictions of sexuality changed over time? How have Black people used forms of art to respond to the colonial or dominant “gaze”? How have Black people reclaimed their bodies from the “gaze”? How have Black people defined or redefined sexuality?
