What does social healing look like in its most effective manifestations? How are we responding to the violence(s) and systemic oppression(s) that pervade our communities? How have we and how can we continue to attend to the real needs and social ills of all our respective communities? What strategies affect revolutionary positive healing? In what ways are social healers resisting, confronting, and/or transforming community healing? Our questions are inspired by the Caribbean novelist, scholar, and social activist, Dr. Erna Brodber.

William Carlos Williams Review

Within the next few years, Williams Carlos Williams's early works such as Al Que Quiere (1917), Kora in Hell: Improvisations (1920), Sour Grapes (1921), Spring and All (1923), and In the American Grain (1925) will reach their centennial anniversary. And since these milestones also coincide with a resurgent scholarly interest in lyric studies and modernist literature in general, the William Carlos Williams Review is soliciting articles for a special, double issue on "The New Williams" (forthcoming in 2015). The coeditors of the project are especially looking for innovative research that brings contemporary critical practices and methodologies to bear on Williams's life and work.

The Rise of the New Negro Woman: "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," and the Harlem Renaissance Experience

Christopher Allen Varlack, UMBC

Traditionally, women writers of the Harlem Renaissance era from Nella Larsen to Jessie Redmon Fauset to Marita Bonner, among others, have been under-represented in criticism both past and present. The concept of the New Negro, after all, was gendered male, excluding the value role that women writers would play in not only challenging the pervasive color line but in calling increased attention to the depths of African-American experience that, as Zora Neale Hurston posits, white publishers would not print.
