CALL FOR PAPERS

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.

[UPDATE] The Monument in Revision, Edited Collection (abstracts due June 1, 2011)

Saturday, April 9, 2011 - 6:12pm
Joseph L.V. Donica/Southern Illinois University Carbondale

With the renewed focus on monuments and memorials after 9/11 new questions are being raised and old ones revisited about how objects become memorialized or even de-memorialized. And while it is clear to us now that the monument's physical presence is always in jeopardy of disappearing, it is not as clear how a monument's meaning travels in and out of various conceptual spaces as the monument changes physical shape or adapts to the cultural ceremonies or power shifts within national states.
