"In a world where language and naming are power, silence is oppression, is violence."
― Adrienne Rich, On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978
"When we (as readers) fill in the gaps that the writer has peppered throughout the book, we form a meaningful bond with the book. We are not just pulling information from it; we're participating in a reciprocal relationship, creating and deriving meaning in an extravaganza of interpretation."
—Wolfgang Iser, Prospecting: From Reader Response to Literary Anthropology

This panel welcomes papers exploring how creative writers and other cultural actors understood racial identity in light of twentieth-century political revolutions. How, for example, did the Afro-diaspora conceive of "blackness" or "Négritude" in the wake of communist upheavals in the Soviet Union (and later Asia, Latin America, and Africa)? How did Marxist revolutionary regimes make space for or undermine cultural expressions that privileged race ahead of social class? What new aesthetic forms (in poetry, fiction, film, theater, visual art, and music) emerged out of contact between racialized subject positions and revolutionary contexts?
Possible topics include (but are hardly limited to):
