{UPDATE] [DEADLINE EXTENDED: July 1] Radical Kinship

updated: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2015 - 12:53pm
Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens
when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign?
When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and
fatherhood?
Can we undomesticate kinship?

African American Literature and the Rise of the Antebellum City, ALA Symposium NOLA 9/10-12 (Deadline 6/28)

Wednesday, June 3, 2015 - 10:59am
ALA Symposium on The City and American Literature New Orleans, LA September 10-12, 2015

There is a growing interest within scholarship on antebellum African American textual production that focuses on how this material shaped 19th-century cultures of print. This scholarship has examined many important areas such as African Americans' places in the plantation economy, their movements through the commercial world of Atlantic trade, and their presence in antebellum political reform movements. However, little of this work has centered on African Americans in the antebellum American city. This roundtable takes up this focus and turns its attention specifically to how these writers shaped and were shaped by the formation of the city as a locus of commercial exchange and civic activism.

Society for the Study of Southern Literature Conference Boston, March 10‐12, 2016 The South in the North

updated: 
Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - 1:34pm
Society for the Study of Southern Literature

SSSL's meeting in Boston will be the first the organization has held in a location north of the Mason‐Dixon line. Ironically, in many ways this has never mattered less, as Southern literary studies' formative focus on regional difference and distinctiveness has been retrained to take in a broader view of the South's reciprocal material and imaginary relations with the US North, other regions, the nation, and transnational permutations of North/South dynamics.
