MLA 2018: Langston Hughes' "Let America Be America Again" Revisited

updated: 
Thursday, March 2, 2017 - 11:00am
Wallis Baxter, Langston Hughes Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Modern Language Association (MLA) Convention will be held from January 4-7, 2018, in New York, NY. The Langston Hughes Society, as part of its continued commitment to honor the life and the legacy of Langston Hughes, will once again host a panel. Interested participants are encouraged to develop a proposal on the subject of "Let America Be America Again” Revisited. 

In the midst of the current sociopolitical climate and the Trump Era’s aim to “Make America Great Again,” it is important that we consider how Hughes speaks to the least, left out, and left behind within America. Specifically, how does Hughes engage the lower class, the immigrant, and the economically disadvantaged, and what insight does he offer in our current context?

Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?
