Conference dates: Thursday, October 19- Friday, October 20, 2023, held in-person at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, 06825

Gloria Naylor is one of the most important writers of 20th century American literature. Her literary works, from The Women of Brewster Place (1982), a NationalBook Award winning novel, to her fictional memoir, 1996, portray the communities that Black women build to resist, survive, and even thrive against the racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia that confines and violates them.

Fashion and literature have a long, intricate relationship. The function of clothing is primarily to conceal the body, yet in some literary texts and film, clothing can often reveal something about character, whether by its style, value, or use. In the 1928 novels, Plum Bun and Quicksand, Jessie Redmon Fauset and Nella Larsen, respectively, highlight fashion as an essential tool for passing, as well as the embodiment of their characters’ elusive identities.

Call for Chapters for Edited Volume:  The American South in Ten Recipes 

Edited by Christopher L. Ballengee

The Southern United States is home to many diverse communities, some historically linked to the legacies of colonization and slavery and others emerging more recently thanks to migration from other parts of the country and from abroad. The essays collected in this volume use food as an entryway to understanding the individuality and interconnectedness of these communities. Each chapter will focus on a single recipe as emblematic of a particular culture, region, or tradition such that the collection of essays comes to characterize the dynamic histories, cultures, and innovations of the American South.

In recent years, print culture scholars have injected unprecedented focus on print production and circulation in Black, working-class, indigenous, and Latinx reading communities in the U.S. Once a field with a reputation for patrician pursuits, book history has expanded to include previously ignored communities and print forms such as newspapers and popular magazines. However, studies of anticapitalist and antiracist print cultures have tended to focus on urban, northeastern publishing capitals such as New York and Boston at the expense of literary scenes from the Great Lakes to the Great Plains.

The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color line, the question as to how far differences of race-which show themselves chiefly in the color of the skin and the texture of the hair-will hereafter be made the basis of denying to over half the world the right of sharing to utmost ability the opportunities and privileges of modern civilization.

—W.E.B. Du Bois (1900)

 

Are there multiple forms or species of racism or simply variations of a fundamental structure?

—Jared Sexton (2012)

 

I have only one solution: to rise above this absurd drama that others have staged around me

—Fanon (1952)

Slavery and its Legacies in the Modern Arabic Novel

There has recently been a surge of interest in the subject of slavery and its legacies in Arabic fictional production.

While some of these Arab novels highlight histories and complex legacies of enslavement, others prefer to revisit and connect the historical contexts and genealogies of slavery to modern issues of social justice, failed nation building projects, and persistent forms of coloniality.  In these novelistic narratives, slavery continues to affect perception of the self and national identity in relation to race, gender and ethnicity, as well as referencing blackness and its socio-cultural constructions within different modern Arab communities.

Envisioning Queer Black and Indigenous Self-Representations within the Digital Literary Sphere

AmLit Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 30, 2023

In their book on Queer Indigenous Studies (2011), Qwo-Li Driskill, Chris Finely, Brian Joseph Gilley and Scott Lauria Morgensen ask: “What does a queer decolonization of our homelands, bodies and psyches look like?” (219). Their question is critical when understanding the complex realities of Indigenous and Black queer individuals in the settler-colonial states of both Canada and the US, as well as in the central and southern states of “Latin” America. The queer Indigenous and Black body – especially when it is trans* or gender nonconforming – is often the site of violence and misrepresentation, yet it is also a site of destabilization and decolonization when reimagined and reified in digital media and literary forms.

Centering Blackness in Fan Studies **DEADLINE EXTENDED**

updated: 
Monday, January 16, 2023 - 10:02am
Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2023

This special issue centers Blackness in fandom studies. Fandom studies has gestured toward race generally, and Blackness in particular, from its alleged white center while always keeping race at its margin. It has largely co-opted the language of race, difference, and diversity from the margins and recentered it around white geeks and white women. Indeed, fandom studies has done lots of things—except deal with its race problem. But as Toni Morrison (1975) asserts, that is the work of racism: it keeps those at the margins busy, trying to prove that they deserve a seat at the center table.
