This is an UPDATED call for papers to contribute to an article collection on African American and
Afro-Caribbean Women Writers.

We are soliciting manuscripts that critically examine contemporary works by African American and
Afro-Caribbean women writers. Manuscripts should explore factors that shape African American
women's identities and trace processes of memory formation as they occur in domestic and public
spheres.

Specifically, we are looking for submissions which address the following areas of influence:

religion
mythologies
magical realism
gender and sexualities
sites of eating and the role of food
historiography
violence
family
vocation/profession
