'Maybe (S)he Had Some Authority': Celebrating the Works of Black Women Writers

updated: 
Friday, July 27, 2018 - 9:31am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) 50th Anniversary Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This year’s NeMLA convention is historic: the organization celebrates five decades of cultivating scholarship and pedagogy in literary studies. Equally historic is the fact that 2019 is an anniversary year for pivotal texts by Black women writers. It marks the sixtieth anniversary of the Broadway debut of Lorraine Hansberry’s critically acclaimed play A Raisin in the Sun (1959), and the fiftieth anniversary of Maya Angelou’s first autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (1969). Moreover, 2019 is also the fortieth anniversary of Octavia Butler’s now canonized fictional slave narrative Kindred (1979).

Récit de filiation roundtable with Martine Sonnet (NeMLA- Washington D.C.)

updated: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018 - 5:19pm
NeMLA 2019 - March 21-24, 2019, Washington, D. C.
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

In this Author-meets-Reader roundtable, Martine Sonnet will discuss her work alongside 3-4 scholars working on French-language filiation narratives. Filiation narratives reflect an effort to recover aspects of one’s family history which were not transmitted to the author. The quest for information, garnered through various possible sources, is then incorporated into the narrative. We invite scholars working either on a filiation narrative subgenre or on Sonnet’s work in particular. Papers may be delivered in French or English.
