Black Masculinity in U.S. History and Literature, 1730-1945.

Timothy R. Buckner and Peter Caster, eds.

We are seeking contributions for an innovative collection of essays
analyzing how African American masculinity has been practiced and imagined
in American history and literature from the colonial period through World
War II. Our goal is to have historians and literary scholars share topics
and sources in a series of paired chapters chronicling the development,
representation, and contest over African American masculinities. Several
university presses have expressed interest in the project, and we are
seeking abstracts in order to provide a more concrete framework to
publishers.
