Subjectivity and Community in Ethnic American Women's Memoir

 

Revised due date.

 

Papers may analyze how Ethnic American women use memoir to claim
subjectivity and join communities. Papers could explore how writers use
memoir to achieve self-actualization; claim subjectivity; and reconcile
their personal and community identities. Papers could also explore how
Ethnic American women manipulate conventional narrative forms (i.e., slave
narratives, travel narratives, and the autobiographical novel) to claim
subjectivity and to gain access to both the publishing community and
mainstream American society.

The Mysterious Unknown: The Gothic and Its Human Others
Seminar Organizer: Ruth Bienstock Anolik, Villanova University

Conventionally, the Gothic narrative traces the encounter of the human
subject with the mysterious and horrifying supernatural, beyond human
experience. This seminar will address the tendency of the Gothic text
to replace the supernatural figure of horror with the human Other, the
person who is represented as being inhumanly horrifying. The seminar
will be divided into three sections (one for each day of the
conference):

A CALLALOO CALL FOR PAPERS

POSTCOLONIALITY AND BLACKNESS

Callaloo seeks creative and multi-disciplinary critical submissions for a
special issue on "postcoloniality and blackness." For this issue, we are
interested in looking comparatively at the uneven postcolonial situation of
black peoples and cultures in the 21st century. We seek to explore the
diverse material and political circumstances of black postcolonials, and the
limitations of current postcolonial theorizing for the black experience.

Creative Submissions
Previously unpublished work in all genres, including interviews.
