The Three Minds of Black America:

Tresconsciousness and the Twenty-First Century

Are you a man, woman, teen or child of African descent who has been torn by society's
expectations of race and class? Have you found yourself developing different personalities in the
workplace, in the church, in the neighborhood, in the classroom, with your family and with your
peers? Are you struggling to find your true self that is comfortable in all settings and situations?

Call for Papers: "Gaiman's Sandman and Feminist Negotiations"
 
Deadline for submission: November 01, 2008

Neil Gaiman's seminal comic book series "The Sandman" portrays a peculiar attitude towards
women. Often empowering, but occasionally troubling, Gaiman's epic narrative negotiates complex
and difficult social and narrative female identities. This panel seeks to explore some of the areas in
which Gaiman addresses (or denies) feminism and feminist theory throughout the series. Please
send abstracts of 250-500 words and your resumé with contact information to:

is to provide a space for scholars of early modern texts to draw the

which need to be revisited. The first batch of ten Introductions has gone
