MLA Special Session: Africa, Memory, Circulation

For a special session on the presidential theme of the 2015 MLA, I am seeking papers that examine sites, theories, and representations of memory in African literatures and film. How have Africanists responded to memory studies? Or, how/when do African literatures/films or African contexts appear in memory studies?

Please 300-word abstracts and 1-page CV to Taiwo Adetunji Osinubi
by 15 March 2014.
