Subjectivity and Community in Ethnic American Women's Memoir

 

Revised due date.

 

Papers may analyze how Ethnic American women use memoir to claim
subjectivity and join communities. Papers could explore how writers use
memoir to achieve self-actualization; claim subjectivity; and reconcile
their personal and community identities. Papers could also explore how
Ethnic American women manipulate conventional narrative forms (i.e., slave
narratives, travel narratives, and the autobiographical novel) to claim
subjectivity and to gain access to both the publishing community and
mainstream American society.

to replace the supernatural figure of horror with the human Other, the
person who is represented as being inhumanly horrifying. The seminar
will be divided into three sections (one for each day of the

In his book REINVENTING COMICS, Scott McCloud explores some of the problems
concerning ethnicity and comics. Not only does he argue for an increased
awareness of ethnic and gender representation in contemporary comics, but he
also highlights many of the ethnoracial concerns underlying the history of
comics in the United States. Using McCloud's arguments as a springboard,
MELUS plans on publishing a special issue devoted to multi-ethnic American
