CFP: Whiteness and Black Masculinity (4/7/03; MMLA, 11/7/03-11/9/03 &amp; possible collection)

"Whiteness and Black Masculinity." Some might argue that the subject of
literature (as practiced in the West) has always been white and male;
however, by arriving at whiteness studies through multiculturalism and
postcolonialism, and arriving at masculinity studies through feminism and
queer theory, it is possible to reexamine the construction of both
whiteness and masculinity in such a way that confronts their aura of
homogeneity and problematizes what had for so long been presented as
hegemonic.
