"Representations of the Body in African-American Literature"

41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA April 7-11, 2010 Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure)



From depictions of freedom and enslavement to portrayals of race relations and everyday life, African-American bodies, their capabilities and limitations, and their cultural representations play a strong role in African-American texts. This panel seeks to explore the way bodies are written into being in African-American literature and asks how they are extended and delimited to portray the presence or absence of power, unity, and cultural capital.

The session "Voices and Voicelessness" proposes to examine the uses of speech, both salvific and illicit or idle, in late medieval literature in light of recent scholarly interest in the plurality of ways in which speech was understood throughout the late medieval period -- as one of the five chief senses, a force for good and evil, a form of touching, an outward expression of an inner state.
