Matters of State: Bildung and Literary-Intellectual Discourse in the
Nineteenth Century
Leuven University, April 23-25 2009
The American and French Revolutions are generally considered as decisive
episodes in the emergence of what we have come to know as modern
democracy. Their displacement of time-honored models of hereditary rule
and of monotheistic conceptions of sovereignty inaugurated Western
modernity. The fall-out of these ruptures made the 19th century an era of
unprecedented intensity in the history of politics and the political. As a
time of massive demographic change, new patterns of production and
distribution, seismic surges in geopoliticization, and relentless social

Matthew W. Hughey

Twenty years have elapsed since the release of Spike Lee’s now infamous
indictment of Black fraternities and sororities in his film School Daze
(1988). Since then, the study of Black Greek Letter Organizations (BGLOs)
has burgeoned from a small peripheral field to one that has captured both
academic and mainstream attention; from the release of scholarship on BGLOs
such as Tamara Brown et. al’s African American Fraternities and Sororities:
The Legacy and the Vision (2005), Theda Skocpol et. al’s What a Mighty
Power We Can Be: African American Fraternal Groups and the Struggle for
Racial Equality (2007), and Gregory S. Park’s Black Greek-letter

Dredging Up Slavery:
Representations of Slavery in Contemporary Popular Culture

Though it has been over a century since it was outlawed in the U.S.,
slavery continually recurs as a theme in literature and other aspects of
American popular culture. Thus, this edited collection seeks to gather
essays that explore how the spectre of slavery appears and/or is rewritten
through a contemporary or even futuristic lens in popular culture. We
seek essays that examine this theme in literature, film, television,
music, graphic novels or comics, contemporary biography or autobiography,
etc.
