CFP: Perspectives on African American Literature (7/31/04; collection)

Harry Olufunwa

After some three centuries of recognised existence, the time is ripe to take a comprehensive look at the nature of African American literature. From being one aspect of the residual tradition of enslaved Africans to the distinguished corpus of literary works that are available today, it can be said that the literature has come a long way from its humble origins. Barriers peculiar to African Americans, especially racial prejudice, have been largely overcome, and a literary tradition worthy of its greatest exponents has come into being. What has been the driving force of this literature? What are the themes and motifs that shape it?

_Is it Terminal?: Reinventing the Master's Degree in English Studies_

Enrollments in MA programs across the country are up dramatically, and
non-PhD granting institutions are turning to the MA as a locus of
programmatic growth. Changes in hiring patterns at the high school and
community college level have enlivened possibilities for the MA. What
can or should the MA in English be? To what and whom is it appropriate?
What are its limitations?

Do the philosophical implications of MTV really get you going?

'MTV and Philosophy'. I seek to obtain the permission of Open Court Books in
publishing the result as part of their trendy Popular Culture and Philosophy

its celebration of pop culture as worthy of in-depth analysis.

Postcolonial Studies Journal: Special Issue: "Postcolonial Food"

Postcolonial Studies is calling for contributions on the topic
of 'Postcolonial Food'. An early reviewer of Claudia Roden's 1968 A Book of
Middle Eastern Food, described the text as 'a work of cultural anthropology'.
The quote is a little misleading: for Roden not only describes a set of
foreign culinary practices, she gives recipes for their recreation. Imagine of
Postcolonial Studies saw that as its mission. We have devoted a great deal of
time to the critique of representation, but rather less to the possibility of
intercultural communication, not to mention learning.
