ACLA 2019: "New Comparative Work on the Eurasian and African Diasporas"

updated: 
Thursday, September 6, 2018 - 9:25am
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

This seminar convenes scholars working at the intersection of Black diaspora studies and Slavic studies broadly construed—including the Russian Empire and former Soviet Union, Central and Southeast Europe, and Central Asia. Earlier scholarship in Afro-Russian and/or Afro-Eurasian studies has emphasized crucial connections between these two fields, including: the parallel histories of bondage and emancipation in the United States and Russian Empire; the representation of “folk” culture in Russian and African American literatures; Black artists’ and writers’ sojourns in the Soviet Union; and the influence of Russian thought and literature on African diasporic writers in the twentieth century.
