Edited Collection on Dave the Potter: Slavery, Poetry, and Pottery

updated: 
Sunday, November 27, 2011 - 9:42am
Michael A. Chaney (Dartmouth College)

The editor invites chapter proposals for an edited collection exploring the work of Dave the Potter. Dave the Potter, or David Drake (ca. 1800-1874), was a nineteenth-century African American slave and potter who worked in Edgefield, South Carolina. In addition to making some of the largest hand-built pottery of the period, Drake incised writing onto his storage jars and pots—signatures, proverbs, couplets of poetry, and witticisms. Some of this writing is documentational, but much of it is proverbial and poetic. Overtly disobeying prohibitions against slave literacy, these inscriptions range in tone from the audacious ("I made this jar" or "Cash Wanted") to the absurd ("Making this Jar—I Had All Thoughts/Lads & Gentlemen—Never Out Walks").

There are still a few places open at the International Conference on Crossroads (treating the English speaking world).

We invite proposals treating the many senses of the term "crossroads," whether physical or not: countries, regions, towns, roads, monuments, sanctuaries, inns, or pilgrimage sites , but also books, paintings, installations or performances. New forms of expression, federating ideas, political and cultural negotiations, cosmopolitanism, cross-fertilizations between the arts, and hybridization of forms and genres can be found at such sites of convergence.

Transitions in Comparative Studies (University College Cork, Ireland 28-30 June 2011)

updated: 
Thursday, November 24, 2011 - 12:54pm
Comparative Literature Association of Ireland/UCC

The comparative gesture performs both the act and the question of transition between the terms compared. Understood as an intercultural practice, comparative literature may thus also be understood as both a transitive and transnational process – creating its own object/form of knowledge as it identifies and analyses lines of relation and exchange between literary cultures. When navigating between languages, it becomes critically engaged with the possibility and methods of such navigation. Meanwhile, interdisciplinary and inter-medial versions of comparative studies likewise centre about transitions which may themselves remain under-analysed.
