deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Recognizing that the New World economy was historically based on the system of slavery and that the United States came into being as a slave-holding nation, we experience the lasting effects of slavery in all facets of contemporary US society and culture. This panel seeks papers analyzing contemporary representations of slave history from the black and white perspectives. While we are very familiar with African American representations of slavery in a number of cultural media, this panel is particularly interested in how contemporary representations of slavery created by people of European descent differ from those of African Americans. How is slavery remembered differently in black and white?

Northeast Modern Language Association Annual Conference: Washington, D.C., March 21-24, 2019

Riffing off Du Bois ("Criteria of Negro Art"), Wright ("Blueprint for Negro Writing"), Lorde ("Poetry is not a Luxury"), Baraka ("Black Art"), and many others, this panel seeks to situate, examine, interrogate, and align black writers in American literature and culture. Our objective is to define the many ways black/African American/Negro/Slave writers have characterized or fictionalized what it “means” to be a writer of color.

As Toni Morrison has written, a “black author…is at some level always conscious of representing one’s own race to, or in spite of, a race of reader that understands itself to be ‘universal’ or race free.”

CALL FOR PAPERS

Bearing Witness: Reading James Baldwin in the 21st Century

(A Critical Anthology)

“Perhaps I did not succumb to ideology . . . because I have never seen myself as a spokesman. I am a witness. In the church in which I was raised you were supposed to bear witness to the truth. Now, later on, you wonder what in the world the truth is, but you do know what a lie is.”—James Baldwin, Interview by Julius Lester
