I am inviting paper abstracts for a proposed special session
entitled "The African in British Eighteenth-Century Literature." Papers
might examine, but are not limited to, the following topics about the
long century, 1660-1815:

* texts authored by African-British writers
* the slavery debates in print
* the representation of African masculinity and/or femininity in
canonical literature, non-canonical literature and satirical graphic art

Paper proposals approximately a page in length should be sent to Kamille
Stone Stanton stonek_at_savstate.edu anytime before February 1, 2008.
