The Department of English at Howard University invites abstracts of papers
to be
presented at its annual Heart's Day celebration to be held on the
University's
main campus Friday, February 16, 2007. The Heart's Day Conference
commemorates the work
of African American and Diasporic writers and supports the endowment of the
Sterling A. Brown Professorship.

This year, the Department celebrates the achievement of African American
Poetry
through the works of Lucille Clifton, Mari Evans and Nikki Giovanni. We
invite abstracts
for papers which consider the works of these poets and the development of
African American
Poetry from 1746 to the present.
