Transforming Visions in African American Literature and Rhetoric

This is an open call for presentations at the Permanent Session on African American Literature. We invite papers that respond broadly the conference theme of “migration.” Projects may treat literary, rhetorical, theoretical, and/or pedagogical concerns raised by the work of African American authors from any period. Papers that pursue transnational analytics or concerns are encouraged. Projects that intersect with feminist, queer, disability, and religious/spiritual inquiries are especially welcome. Proposals due by April 20 to T J Geiger at geiger.tj@gmail.com.
