Identity and Liminality in African American Literature

This panel seeks presentations about the proclivity of African American racial space. That is, this panel is interested in when and where conceptions of spatial race formalities are conducted. We can think of “space” as time, place, and movement—the constant liminal changing of identities. This panel invites abstracts, of no more than 250 words, for presentations on African American literature at the Midwest Modern Language Association conference. Some topics might include:

Navigating Chaos: Living the Apocalyptic Dystopia

Hegel wrote that the only thing we can learn from history is that we learn nothing from history, so I doubt the epidemic will make us any wiser. The only thing that is clear is that the virus will shatter the very foundations of our lives, causing not only an immense amount of suffering but also economic havoc conceivably worse than the Great Recession. There is no return to normal, the new “normal” will have to be constructed on the ruins of our old lives, or we will find ourselves in a new barbarism whose signs are already clearly discernible.                          (Slovaj Žižek, Pandemic!)

On behalf of the Editorial Board of Culture, Theory and Critique, I would like to provide an update on our journal’s operations during this difficult time. We recognise that many authors and reviewers will have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in different ways and may thus not be able to meet deadlines or to carry out tasks that seemed entirely feasible but a few weeks ago at all. Please know that we understand entirely and reach out if ever you wish to discuss how we can work together for a positive result – and please forgive any automated reminders that still fly your way from our systems.
