Ethnic Literature and the African Focus: The Third International Symposium on Ethnic Literature

updated: 
Monday, September 19, 2016 - 10:09am
Hangzhou Dianzi University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 20, 2016

The development of ethnic literature epitomizes the complex relationship among literature, culture, and politics in a society. The recent immigration crisis from Asia and Africa to Europe has posed new questions for academia. Are current theories on ethnicity, race, and nationality still helpful in explaining the identity of these migrants? What do ethnicity and ethnic literature mean at this historical juncture?  How do we view the relationship among ethnic literature, diaspora, and globalization?

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

American comics have a long and checkered history in the way they have portrayed racial difference, though more recent comics/graphic novels have used the medium to comment effectively on American racial politics. As the genre grows in popularity in bookstores and on college campuses, now seems an opportune time to take stock of the ways this medium has both fostered and critiqued racist attitudes. This panel welcomes submissions on this topic from any era of American comics/ graphic novels and from any literary critical or cultural studies perspective.

Friday, September 30, 2016

From Charles Brockden Brown’s Edgar Huntly through Nathaniel Hawthorne’s House of the Seven Gables, a long tradition of antebellum American fiction concerns itself with the “prehistory” of American capitalism. While many critics have drawn attention to these formative years of a distinct American literature and their relation to the national imaginary, few if any have emphasized that these narratives underscore both the importance of land appropriation and the institution of economic contract to the transition between this “prehistory” and capitalist social relations.
