Austin Clarke's Critical Neglect

deadline for submissions:

Proposals Due Noveber 1

This panel calls for a reassessment of Austin Clarke’s writing. While Clarke was one of Canada’s earliest, most prolific, and most awarded writers, scholarship on his work remains scarce. This critical neglect is particularly surprising given his foundational role in Canadian literature; his first short stories predate Frye’s articulation of ‘where is here?’ This neglect has not gone wholly unnoticed: W.J. Keith describes his Clarke’s writing as “characteristically neglected” and Clarke’s biographer, Stella Algoo Baksh argues that there is “a dearth of comprehensive examinations of Clarke’s life and writing.”
