Queer Encounters in Afro-Diasporic Space, ALA, April 13-17, 2011, Athens, Ohio

African Literature Association

African literature has often envisioned queer encounters within the frame of Afro-diaspora. Wole Soyinka's Joe Golder from The Interpreters (1965), the emblematic figure for such encounters, is an African American returning from the "other side" of diaspora. Simultaneously, travel across Afro-diasporic geographies frequently queers African protagonists, as their bodies and desires extend in new spaces and assume new configurations. Those who travel from Africa to Europe, the U.S., and the Caribbean experience their desires as unruly, refusing to follow the ethno-racial demands and sex-gender object choices their personal and collective histories dictate.

This panel addresses the various relationships between seriality and temporality.
The serial principle has a important influence on contemporary culture: novels, movies and television shows, comic books, video games, etc. are published in series. Consequently, this principle largely informs contemporary ways of conceiving, producing and making sense of narratives in general. This panel wants to locate the importance of seriality within our present-day mediascape.

Narrative is the Essence of History: The History of the Historical Novel

Northeast Modern Language Association

The historical novel has had a very interesting history itself. During the 19th century the historical novels of Scott, Hugo, Thackeray, Dickens, Tolstoy and a host of other writers enjoyed both popular success and critical admiration. Success has never really died out, but admiration has been another matter. During the 20th century, historical fiction began to be disparaged by critics who looked down on the genre and its elements of romance, adventure and swashbuckling. This disparagement reached such a pitch that Robert Graves, author of I, Claudius and Claudius the God, felt compelled to say that he only wrote these novels because of pressing financial needs.
