CFP: [African-American] African American Children's literature MLA special session

The study of African American children's literature resides at the
intersection of many disciplines-- African American literature and
children's literature of course, but also cultural studies, studies of
gender and sexuality, American history, popular culture, and more. This
rich and fruitful interdisciplinarity makes for an innovative and exciting
field that, because it has not been claimed by any one field, is often left
out of critical conversations altogether.
   I'm seeking others interested in participating in a special session on
African American children's literature at the 2008 MLA. Please contact me
with your expressions of interest and/or proposals by March 25 at

 From the Literary Calls for Papers Mailing List
