The Department of English at Howard University invites abstracts to be
presented at its annual Heart's Day celebration to be held on the
Univerity's main campus Friday, February 15, 2008. The Heart's Day
Conference commemorates the work of African-American and Diasporic
writers and supports the endowment of the Sterling A. Brown Professorship.

This year, the Department celebrates writers of contemporary African-
Amercian fiction FROM RICHARD WRIGHT TO THE PRESENT. We invite abstracts
that address (but are not limited to) aspects of the following topics:
authors, narrative strategies, major characters, themes, social
commentary, and matters of race, class, gender, image, identity or
attitude.

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be submitted by December 15, 2007 to
english_at_howard.edu AND to mbremseth_at_howard.edu. Select proceedings of the
conference will likely be published as a collection of essays or as a
special issue of a peer reviewed journal.
