NEMLA in Buffalo, April 2008:

This panel welcomes analyses of inter-racial desire in American LGQBT
literatures. A
relatively unexamined area in literary studies, the subjects, themes, and
complexities of
inter-racial presence in LGQBT literature presents an exciting
opportunity to generate
theoretical knowledge and critical discussion around the intersections of
sexuality, and queer/quare identities. Prospective panelists are invited
to explore the
significance, poetics, and/or applicability of queer/quare theories to
literary works as
they may relate to the overall theme/subject matter of same sex inter-
racial desire.
Suggested writers include but are not limited to James Baldwin, Ann
Shockley, Audre
Lourde, Christopher Bram, and David Henry Hwang. Abstracts are due
September 20th, 2007
for NEMLA conference in April. Please send abstracts to Reginald A.
Wilburn at or

 From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
