APRIL 19-21, 2007, UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI-KANSAS CITY
22ND ANNUAL INTERDISCIPLINARY NINETEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES CONFERENCE (INCS)

Inspired by Bram Stoker's innovative narrative forms and themes in Dracula-—and in particular by Jonathan Harker's statement in his journal that he is witnessing the "nineteenth-century up-to-date with a vengeance"--this conference will explore the thoroughly modern forms of communication, technological development, and scientific discovery that emerged in the period.

Melvin B. Tolson Out of the Archive

 

Melvin B. Tolson is one of the few African American writers (along with
James Emanuel, Stanley Edgar Hyman, and four items from Amiri Baraka) to
have his papers housed in the Library of Congress. Composed for 4,000
items including manuscripts of unpublished writing and correspondence
with some of America's most important literary figures, this archive is
an untapped wealth of resources about one of modernisms most important
figures and stands as a document of Modernism itself.

Black Poetry Out of the Archive

 

Because poetry written by blacks in the United States since the turn of
the 20^th Century has mainly been defined in terms of its oral or
experiential power, little attention has been given to the literate
aspects of that poetry's development, production, or publication.
Archives, of course, are the record of such literate processes, and many
of the archives of some of modernism and postmodernism's most important
black writers have yet to be adequately studied for the critical light
they can shed on the poetic work.
