The annual Rice University Symposium in Houston, Texas invites papers that examine the unexpected material and affective supports of the common, commons, and community. Papers might explore representations of communities as they develop across spatial and temporal boundaries as well as how shared background understandings connect to the experience of the ordinary. We are especially interested in how these issues relate to the question of the commons and the role collective life plays in various social imaginaries. Submissions that range across periods, theoretical orientations, and disciplines are welcome.
Possible paper topics:
For our 2nd Annual Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies Graduate Conference, we invite submissions that explore the possibilities of Gridlock.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Negritud: Revista de Estudios Afro-Latinoamericanos
Léon Gontran DAMAS: A Thorough Negritude
Born on March, 28th, 1912, the Martinico-Guyanese Négritude thinker and poet, Léon Gontran Damas, is the one idea man of Négritude whose works is overlooked. Indeed, only a handful of academic analyses can be found on his writing and contribution to Négritude. Yet, Damas is the very first one of the three Négritude Fathers – Damas, Césaire and Senghor – to ever have published works magnifying the Négritude's ideas. Additionally, the intensity of his poetry is the element which makes of Négritude a poignantly thorough poetic and political revolutionary movement.
