James Baldwin once said, “The paradox of education is precisely this - that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.” Baldwin’s words here are significant. Education shapes an individual’s critical questions about the world in which he or she lives and his or her connection to the world at large. This call for papers is for a Skype guest lecturer opportunity aimed at raising the consciousness of students in a Black History course at a HBCU.

The ultimate goal is to create a classroom that merges a variety of teaching styles so that a diverse range of student learning styles are accommodated.

Call for Papers

Evil in the Written Word: Violent Narrators in Contemporary Latin American Fiction 

The topic of violence has been of significant importance in Spanish American literature. Brutal dictatorships, revolutionary wars, drug-related violence, and guerrilla warfare have left a strong imprint on contemporary Spanish American literature. Despite this, there are few literary works presented through the point of view of the perpetrator of violence and told in his or her voice. Consequently, few studies investigate the construction of these voices and analyze the effect of this narrative design in the literature of violence.
