“If you are not a myth whose reality are you? If you are not a reality whose myth are you?” –Sun Ra, Prophetika, Book One

 

Since the publication of Mark Dery’s now-seminal article on Afrofuturism, “Black to the Future” (1993), several critical studies have expanded the concept of black speculative fiction and claimed it as a full-fledged genre of its own. Indeed, the mainstream releases of a graphic novel adaptation of Octavia Butler’s Kindred, Marvel’s Black Panther and Ava Duvernay’s A Wrinkle in Time point to the existence of what we might now might call an “Afrofuturist canon.”

DEADLINE EXTENDED: MSA 2018: Modernism and Religious Visual Culture

This proposed panel for the Modernist Studies Association’s 2018 conference in Columbus, Ohio, November 8-11, seeks to expand on recent work in modernism and religion—from Pericles Lewis, Justin Neuman, and Matthew Mutter, among others—by exploring how modernist writers responded to, incorporated, or shaped religious visual culture, defined broadly. If modernist literary production was much more concerned with questions of religion than past scholarship has allowed, what role did religious visual culture play in shaping that engagement? Did modernist writers adapt or incorporate the religious visual culture of the early twentieth century? Did they shape it or produce new examples of it themselves?

Given their contribution to the historical development of the coastal south and the Americas in general, pirates are relatively absent in the present southern literary canon and its criticisms. As the Companion to Southern Literature mentions with some surprise, “southern writers…seem not to have cared much about pirates…[particularly] given the fact that some of the most notorious pirates worked the coastal regions of the Southeast.” And yet, nineteenth-century fiction about the American South was flooded with pirates.
