This session welcomes papers that will investigate the range of comedic forms embedded within African American literature. On the heels of the twentieth anniversary of the release of Saidiya Hartman’s seminal monograph Scenes of Subjection, this panel’s exploration of the use of humor in black literature offers a new critical framework for exploring the ways that spectacles of violence have continued to undergird representations of black performance in contemporary critical thought. From the auction block to the jazz stage, “blackness” manifests epidermally and externally, often through public articulations of shared racial grief. As such, recent critical work has often framed humor as a tactical response to racial violence.

Borderlines: Ekphrasis and the Status of the Poetic in Rhetorical Appeals

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The proposed panel purports to explore the functions of ekphrasis and the poetic in rhetorical appeals. It welcomes papers based on the Classical appeals to logos, pathos and ethos, as well as Modern appeals to authority, evidence, data, time, place, the body, gender, race, literary tropes and narrative form. Within the context of the panel, the term ekphrasis is broadly interpreted in both its Ancient sense, as energeia, that is vivid sensuous description, or its more Modern sense as the verbal representation of visual representation. Another way to frame the intention of the panel would be to say that it purports to explore the persuasive power of both vision and language from Antiquity to the present.
