LITERARY HORIZONS JOURNAL

In Their Eyes were Watching God (1937), Zora Neal Hurston describes the
Black woman as the “mule of the world” because she is both a victim of
racism and of male domination. During the period in which Hurston writes,
do other writers, both male and female, support her perspective? What is
the place of the Black woman 50 years later? Given these questions, the
Literary Horizons Journal, a journal dedicated solely to publishing the
work of graduate students, is soliciting papers that explore the role of
the Black woman in American Literature. The topics may include but are
not limited to:

CFP: [Collections] Is Paris Burning? Parisian Rap, Hip Hop and Civil Unrest

updated: 
Thursday, October 30, 2008 - 9:55pm
Richard Gray

Following the Paris riots of 2005, there emerged a backlash against
French rap and hip hop artists who were immediately blamed for inciting
the youth of the "banlieues" to riot. For many years, French rap and hip
hoppers had been writing music outlining the sub-standard conditions of
the "banlieues" as residents fought to overcome racism, poverty, and an
often poor relationship with the police. Most artists defended
themselves, stating that their music was never intended to incite
violence, but was rather meant to simply make known the problems that had
brought the citizens of the "banlieues" to riot.

CFP: [20th] Representing 9/11, Social Negotiation, and Psychological Trauma (1/2/09)

Paul Petrovic

The 17th annual Midwest Conference on Literature, Language, and Media (MCLLM)
will be held March 20-21, 2009 at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb,
Illinois.

Since 9/11, there has been a call for authors to legitimately represent the
attack on New York City. Several texts, including but not limited to
William Gibson’s Pattern Recognition (2003) and Jess Walter’s The Zero
(2006), utilize the 9/11 attacks as a psychological framework within genre
fiction to highlight the (in)stabilization, negotiation, and fragmentation
of individuals in society, while Don DeLillo’s Falling Man (2007) offers a
more literary attempt at directly representing 9/11.
