This is an UPDATED call for papers to contribute to an article collection on African American and
Afro-Caribbean Women Writers.

We are soliciting manuscripts that critically examine contemporary works by African American and
Afro-Caribbean women writers. Manuscripts should explore factors that shape African American
women's identities and trace processes of memory formation as they occur in domestic and public
spheres.

Specifically, we are looking for submissions which address the following areas of influence:

religion
mythologies
magical realism
gender and sexualities
sites of eating and the role of food
historiography
violence
family
vocation/profession

Please send 500-750 word abstracts to the editors Marie Drews (mdrews_at_wsu.edu) and Verena Theile
(vtheile_at_wsu.edu) by MARCH 1. Submissions should be attached to e-mails in Word or RTF format.
Please include a brief biographical sketch and/or CV.

Upon acceptance, full articles (Chicago Style format; 7,500 to 10,000 words, which includes notes
and bibliography) will be due June 15, 2007.
