Sweet Home Chicago? Rethinking Blues Literature

 

MLA 2019

Chicago, IL   3 January – 6 January 2019

 

What is the current state of Blues Literature? It has been well over thirty years since Houston Baker Jr.’s Blues, Ideology, and Afro-American Literature: A Vernacular Theory (1984) put blues back on the critical map. Much has changed since then. Even with innovative interventions in the field (Davis, Bolden, Gussow, McGinley), blues literature has fallen out of vogue within academic circles. This panel seeks to rethink blues literature's critical value.
