James J. Donahue, Jennifer Ho, and Shaun Morgan

In her landmark study of race and American literature, Playing in the Dark (1992), Toni Morrison argued that literary history has taken for granted a certain set of assumptions, including the understanding that "American literature is free of, uninformed, and unshaped by the four-hundred-year-old presence of, first, Africans and then African Americans in the United States" and that "this presence [...] had no significant place or consequence in the origin and development of that culture's literature" (4-5). Morrison's work provides a thoughtful and insightful study of race in American narrative and has inspired a generation of scholars to continue the study of race and ethnicity in American literature.

PURITY: A Call For Papers

updated: 
Tuesday, December 11, 2012 - 5:08am
Excursions Journal

"Purity is the power to contemplate defilement." – Simone Weil

"Purity is a negative state and therefore contrary to nature." – William Faulkner

"Throughout human history, the apostles of purity, those who have claimed to possess a total explanation, have wrought havoc among mere mixed-up human beings." – Salman Rushdie

PURITY is a division, a concept, a value-system, a fallacy, an ideal state, a doctrine, a transfer. It marks the territories of sex and contamination, mathematics and martyrdom, economy and resistance, music and annihilation.
