LANGUAGE IN THE FRANCOPHONE SPACE

updated: 
Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 10:37am
SAMLA 91 - Nov 8-10 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Language is a crucial aspect of the Francophone world, on the threshold between French and Creole, or other indigenous languages. The decision to write in a certain language can be simply dictated by the author’s feelings, or it can become a true political statement. As well, choosing one does not always mean that the other will remain silent: whether such process is carefully crafted, or on the contrary happens on a subconscious level, languages influence one another, and such influx tend to surface in poems, novels, songs, and other forms of expression.

We live in them, move through them, occupy them, gentrify them, lay claim, then
reclaim them, tame them and maim them. We build them, enrich them, define
them, consign them. They can be first or final frontiers, domestic or foreign, and
they can even encapsulate moments—curvatures in time. Given that space is the
fundamental medium through which we live our lives, how do we define spaces,
and how do spaces define us?

CFP:The Language of Black Women Writers: Power, Identity, and Relationships

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 10:28am
South Atlantic Modern Languages Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

In her 1977 essay “Toward a Black Feminist Criticism,” Barbara Smith says, “The use of Black women’s language and cultural experience in books by Black women about Black women results in a miraculously rich coalescing of form and content and also takes their writing far beyond the confines of white/male literary structures.” Smith uses “black women’s language” to make the case that a black feminist framework would have much in common with a rapidly expanding black women’s literary tradition. An unending source for “cultural manifestations” of black womanhood, literature from black women has a critical value outside of white/male literary structures.

August Wilson’s plays are powerful in their ability to center marginalized histories through performance and language. With the recent release of Denzel Washington’s award-winning film production of Fences (2016), and the award-winning Broadway production of Jitney (2016-2017), there has been renewed focus and interest in not only Wilson’s work, but also the Hill District, where Wilson lived and where all but one of his plays are set.
