This panel focuses on the use of American Indian Literary Nationalism as a framework for reading texts by Native authors. We will examine the ways in which AILN has been employed and has created new spaces for interpretations of Native literature.  Since the 2006 publication of the groundbreaking American Indian Literary Nationalism, scholars in the field of Native American Literature are re-evaluating the ways in which texts by Native authors are read. As well, subsequent works analyzing Native literatures using the methods of AILN have been instrumental in creating new spaces for interpretation. This panel focuses on the influence of AILN and its contributions specifically to the field of Native American Literature.

MELUS at SAMLA 88

In a 2005 article for The New York Times, Canadian-Russian author and American academic Michael Ignatieff raised a provocative question: "Who Are Americans to Think That Democracy Is Theirs to Spread?" Surveying a range of critical responses to the US war in the Middle East, such as the idea that US involvement is economically self-serving, or that it facilitates the rise of increasingly repressive regimes, Ignatieff argues that the US has been ineffective, if not oppositional, in its stated aims of promoting democracy worldwide. This MELUS panel builds on SAMLA 88's theme of "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It" and perspectives like Ignatieff's to ask how multi-ethnic American writers position the US amidst the political unrest of their birth nation.

In The Tropics Bite Back, literary scholar Valérie Loichot highlights Maryse Condé’s urging of Caribbean writers to “bite back” (mordre en retour) at their respective colonial powers. One method, which Condé calls ‘literary cannibalism,’ has been employed by authors throughout the African diaspora. Examples include Zora Neale Hurston’s revisiting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet in her short story “Spunk”, Condé’s own Windward Heights, a revision of Charlotte Brönte’s Victorian classic, and Alice Randall’s The Wind Done Gone.
