This is a 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
Please send 500-750 word abstracts to the editors Marie Drews and Verena Theile (vtheile_at_wsu.edu) by February 15. Submissions should be attached to e-mails in Word or RTF format. Please include a brief biographical sketch or CV.
