Keynote speaker: Dr Peter Beal FBA (Institute of English Studies, University of London)

The medium is the message.

With the revolution of (e)merging technologies as our schema, we seek pluralistic and interdisciplinary research on the dynamic network linking modes of communication, mass media and textuality.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

The deadline for submissions is Monday, 12 October 2009.

We invite proposals for a book-length project related to issues in women's performance art and texts in the African Diaspora, broadly conceived. We are primarily interested in works by female artists and writers that articulate "the Black Atlantic" as both a theoretical concept and a lived experience, particularly in relation to the interplay of race, class, and gender in fictional and/or (auto) biographical pieces.
