SAMLA 91 Special Call for Abstracts: A Toni Morrison Tribute

To honour the late Toni Morrison, SAMLA seeks papers to explore her illimitable legacy as a writer, publisher, intellectual, and citizen. SAMLA welcomes abstracts on any topics germane to Morrison's work and life. Special consideration will be given to abstracts addressing:

-          Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' recent documentary Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (2019)

-          Morrison's final non-fiction collection The Source of Self-Regard: Essays, Speeches, Meditations (2019)

-          Teaching Morrison in the Twenty-First Century

Accepted abstracts will be used to create a special block of programming at SAMLA 91 dedicated to Morrison. Conference attendees already scheduled to present at SAMLA 91 are invited to submit abstracts as well.

By Friday, September 13th, please send 150-250 word abstract and brief bio to samla@gsu.edu.
