Feeling (Un)American: Race and National Belonging in the African American Literary Tradition

In his 1903 The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Du Bois poses a question at the heart of the African-American literary tradition: “How does it feel to be a problem?” We see the question’s precursors in Walker’s Appeal, Douglass’ address on the Fourth of July, and Harper’s anti-slavery poetry. It reverberates in Hurston’s “How It Feels To Be Colored Me,” Ellison’s “black and blue,” Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, and Rankine’s Citizen. Taking up the affective relationship between race and national belonging, these texts ask us to contend with what it feels like to be black in a nation founded on anti-blackness. Indeed, as Baldwin and Coates make clear, the problem lies ever “between the world and me.”

deadline for submissions:

How does pedagogical strategizing work in teaching Global South Asian literatures in majority serving institutions located in areas where the student body is mostly white, or lacking in South Asian immigrant groups? How does South Asian literature find a place in general education core courses? What are some current practices and challenges that scholars of color specializing in and including South Asia as a text, experience in their classrooms? We are interested in sharing experiences on teaching, planning courses, writing curriculum development projects including South Asia centric courses both for the major and the general education classes that embrace the inclusion of literatures from the global South, especially from South Asia.
