This panel seeks papers that explore the engagement with education and race in American literature. How do educational spaces act as sites of racial construction? How has literature engaged with events central to the history of American education? Papers that speak to the intersections between representations of education and racial subjection, segregation, the law, citizenship and/or immigration are welcome. Please send your 300-500 word abstract and a brief biographical statement to Samira Abdur-Rahman at sabdurrah@gmail.com.
