Pauline E. Hopkins in Comparative Perspective
The Pauline E. Hopkins Society invites proposals that examine any aspect of Hopkins’ work or life from a comparative perspective for presentation at the 34rd Annual American Literature Association Convention, to be held in Boston, May 25-28, 2023. Papers may put Hopkins in dialogue with any of her contemporaries or examine her work in relation to any later writer(s), such as Gwendolyn Brooks, Toni Morrison, or Octavia Butler. We especially welcome submissions examining Hopkins in relation to popular culture (e.g. Wakanda, Lovecraft Country) and speculative fiction.
