THE EXPRESSIVE ART OF TARELL ALVIN MCCRANEY:
BETWEEN NOW AND THEN
Anticipated Publication Date:
The African American session is open to all papers that explore some aspect of African American culture, but we are particularly interested in papers attuned to some facet of the conference theme, "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing."
Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by May 21, 2017. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.
Paper proposals must be made via our online system found here:
Part travelogue, part professional reflection, this book will be a peer-reviewed anthology of original composition--narratives, interviews, field observations, formal academic writing--about teaching outside one’s country of origin as a person of African descent. The book seeks to augment the voices--and use print publication to promote the career advancement--of black educators who may otherwise not have access to either. In addition to parity, the publication will celebrate the unique perspectives and creative problem-solving that evolve from Africana or black cultural ways of knowing and teaching in intercultural context. Topical considerations may include a variety of impressions about instruction, pedagogy, and institutional leadership.
Most handbooks on the subject of horror focus specifically on film, whereas books on the literary manifestations of horror tend to be bound to the idea of the “Gothic.” The current field of Gothic studies grows out of the study of Romanticism, and refers specifically to a late eighteenth-century genre, but has also come to denote a critical approach to literature, film, and culture, drawing on psychoanalysis, post structural criticism, feminist and queer theory. These perspectives are all to be included here, but the book responds to a growing sense that “horror” is itself a worthwhile focus of analysis.

The editors of EWR are constantly seeking new information about such Welty news items as adaptations of her works, forthcoming conferences of interest to Welty scholars, and awards given to Welty in acknowledgement of her contributions to American literature.
