The African-American Literature and Culture Society invites proposals
related to the following topic, for a session at the American Literature
Association meetings in Boston [May 24-27, 2007].


Re-examining Migration

In recent years, historians like Darlene Clark Hine have called for a
more nuanced look at African American experiences with migration,
highlighting issues such as gender and geography as important focus
points. How have African-American writers responded to this call? What
new types of concerns or themes emerge in contemporary representations
of migration?
