M/MLA (Midwest Modern Language Association) African American Literature I Panel CFP:
Intersections of African American Literacies and Popular Culture
        Paper topics should explore connections between popular culture (film, music, TV) and African
American literacies. For example, Cornel West, one of the most prominent African American
theorists, has produced a rap CD. What are the implications of such crossover scholarships? Other
questions to consider include, but are not limited to, what are the connections between popular
culture and African American literacies? How are these connections defined? What are the common
attitudes and practices that inform African American productions in both popular culture and
literature? Abstracts should be 300 words or less and in Word format. Please send to
