From Langston Hughes' 1955 collaboration with photographer Roy DeCarava in The Sweet Flypaper of Life, Wallace Thurman's 1929 collaboration with William Jourdan Rapp in Harlem: A Melodrama of Negro Life in Harlem, and the infamous collaboration of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston in Mule Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life, the Harlem Renaissance era was a time of flourishing inter-arts collaborations under-examined in contemporary criticism. This panel therefore welcomes papers about the inter-arts collaborations of the Harlem Renaissance inspired by the SAMLA 87 theme, In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts.

"Horizons of Challenge and Change" - Call for Proposals:

We live in a time of great challenge and significant change. Technology, economics, identity, and imagination are just four of the many catalysts we see for these struggles and opportunities. Shifts in our culture and in higher education assure that the future will be quite different than today, without necessarily providing clarity about what the new landscape might look like.

June Cummins, Children's Literature Association
contact email: 

Jewish children's literature offers radically diverse portrayals of Jewish cultures and experiences. From picture books depicting Spanish, Ethiopian, and Asian-Jewish histories; to young adult novels addressing Israeli-Palestinian conflicts and Arab-Jewish identities; to works exploring untapped reservoirs of Mideast-Jewish fantastic, mystical, and folklore texts, children's and young adult literature offer a diverse array of approaches to questions of Jewish identities and experiences. Such thematics subvert an often Caucasian and Ashkenzi-dominated discourse regarding Jewish literature.

Nineteenth-century Women Writers Reviewed invites applications for editorial board members.

NCWWR is a digital documentary edition, dedicated to recovering the 'lost' critical reception of women writers in the 19C. NCWWR collects artifacts of women writers published from 1789-1900 appearing in British and American periodicals: these artifacts include reviews, extracts of prose and poetry, tributes, advertisements, notices of publication, and references. Then, using an Omeka database, our editorial team transcribes, edits, annotates and codes these artifacts in TEI/XML. NCWWR expands on Romantic Women Writers Reviewed, a 9-volume print series published between 2011-13 by Pickering and Chatto.
