CFP: Disability in African Fiction

=20

Proposals are invited for a panel on the above subject for presentation
at the forthcoming MLA convention in Chicago. While all approaches,
topics and methodologies are welcome, efforts should be made to
critically examine the concept of high or low culture in African
fiction, especially as it relates to disabled characters. The
question, Is There a High or Low Culture in an Oral Society will
hopefully be answered by examining, through selected fictional
portraits, how certain illnesses/handicaps reflect the perceptions of
individuals that are situated in high or low culture.=20
