Christopher Allen Varlack, UMBC

Traditionally, women writers of the Harlem Renaissance era from Nella Larsen to Jessie Redmon Fauset to Marita Bonner, among others, have been under-represented in criticism both past and present. The concept of the New Negro, after all, was gendered male, excluding the value role that women writers would play in not only challenging the pervasive color line but in calling increased attention to the depths of African-American experience that, as Zora Neale Hurston posits, white publishers would not print.

This could enhance the students ability to absorb the information being taught.

DENVER COMIC CON

DENVER, CO May 22-25, 2015

The standard length of a comic book is 22 pages. What comes next? Page 23. Through Page 23's LitCon (formerly ROMOCOCO), comics scholars establish comic books and graphic novels as important, canonical texts that echo far beyond their final panels. Teaching comics, creating academic analyses, publishing the work of fellow comics scholars - this isn't a revolution; it's just what's next.
