Panel Title: The African American West

Conference: Western American Literature Association, Boise, Idaho,
October 25-28, 2006.

This panel will examine the various ways that African American
experience in the American West has been depicted and imagined. We will
emphasize the wide range of those experiences, from the earliest black
pioneers to contemporary writers who have lived in or written about the
West. Papers that focus on the depiction of African American experience
in other media (film, television, etc.) than literature are also
welcome.

Please send 250-300 word abstract with name, address, affiliation,
email, phone, fax, and A/V requests by June 7, 2006 to:
