CFP: [African-American] Racial Passing Since 1990 (9/14/07; collection)

Thursday, August 2, 2007 - 3:21pm
Julie Cary Nerad

Much insightful scholarship has been published on the representation of
racial passing in American literature, especially in texts from the
antebellum period through the Harlem Renaissance and Jim Crow segregation.
Even in a “post Civil Rights era,” however, racial passing has continued to
interest writers as a means to explore identity and race relations in
America. Within the last decade and a half, authors as diverse as Elizabeth
Atkins Bowman, Wesley Brown, Alice Randall, Philip Roth, and Danzy Senna,
among others, have incorporated racial passing within novels. Perhaps the
most highly visible evidence of the continued relevance of racial passing

CFP: [20th] Moral Turn in Contemporary British Fiction (9/15/07; NEMLA 4/10/08-4/13/08)

Thursday, August 2, 2007 - 2:40pm
Jeff Roessner

        The question of morality has been a particularly vexed one in
contemporary fiction. If there is a moral stance taken, it would seem to
be in what Linda Hutcheon described as the politics of postmodernism â€"
the celebration of diversity, heterogeneity, and (to borrow Salman
Rushdie’s term) mongrelization. In short, recalling voices from the
margins of traditional historical and political narratives and
celebrating polyphonic expressions of identity and culture have been seen
as goods in and of themselves. But an increasing number of novelists â€"
including Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, J.M. Coetzee, and others â€" have turned
their attention to pressing moral questions that do not easily reward
