"I'm sick of Flannery O'Connor." With this opening line, Randy Boyagoda intrigued numerous readers in his response to Paul Elie's 2012 New York Times article entitled, "Has Fiction Lost Its Faith?"

Boyagoda will be the keynote speaker, and this conference aims to continue the discussion which Elie, Boyagoda, Gioia, and Wolfe have perpetuated. Papers will be considered from a variety of disciplines and fields but should pursue questions regarding the intersection of faith and literature.

The Long Durée in Afro-Modernist Cinema and Literature

updated: 
Monday, February 24, 2014 - 2:54pm
full name / name of organization: 
MLA 2015 Panel Proposal

We solicit papers on afro-modernist literature and film that reveal the usefulness and limits of the long durée as an analytical tool. How do African American and other Black diasporic texts engage the dialectic between modernist aesthetics and philosophical concerns with history? Does this engagement allow to move beyond both the imperative of the present and the idea of origins? Some examples of how the temporal expansion is elaborated by modernist projects are Ralph Ellison's strategy of "diggin' in" the temporal layers of the architecture of Rome, the epic poems by Melvin Tolson, the diasporic cartography of Haile Gerima's films.
