Teaching American Ethnic Literatures

Thursday, May 28, 2009 - 2:32pm
Helane Adams Androne, PhD/Miami University of Ohio, Middletown campus

American ethnic authors are literary conjurers of memory and imagination, creating each character full of spirit and consequence, joy and irreversible pains. These authors interpret and provoke self-legitimization of the varied realms of ethnic experience and memory in American society. American ethnic literatures present an ongoing dialogue between ethnic individual and mainstream culture, history, class, religion and sexuality. All of these issues are at play for teachers attempting to establish ethnically inclusive literary curriculums. Teaching American ethnic literatures requires that instructors decide and develop a philosophical stance and pedagogical framework for their classrooms.

Oscar Micheaux and the American West (9/30-10/3/09)

Thursday, May 28, 2009 - 1:30pm
Western Literature Association

This panel will explore Micheaux's relationship with South Dakota and the American West. The Western Literature Association Conference will be holding its annual meeting in Spearfish, South Dakota, this year (September 30-October 3, 2009). This is the first time since 1977 that the conference has been in South Dakota and represents an opportune time to re-examine Oscar Micheaux's work in the context of his western experiences. The years Micheaux spent homesteading in South Dakota had a continuing influence on his writing and filmmaking throughout his career. Individual papers might focus on Micheaux's books, his films, or a combination of the two.

Collection: American Literature After the "American Century"

Thursday, May 28, 2009 - 11:41am
Gioia Wods and Lance Rubin

We are looking for 2-3 essays to round out a collection entitled "American Literature After the 'American Century'". Broadly concieved, the essays we are looking for should explore the formal and thematic trends that are found in the ealy years of this new century. What characterizes American literary preoccupations after the 20th century, the so-called "American Century," as coined by Henry Luce in 1941? How have American writers incorporated or resisted social, cultural, and political events in the 21st century? How is American literature responding to what Fareed Zakaria has called "the post-American world" or what Davis S. Mason has called "the end of the American Century"?
