The Specter of Race: Stephen King's Representations of Black Masculinity
One of the most pertinent concerns in King's extensive oeuvre is the black body. King's works often deal with the body as a site of horror and abjection. His novella The Body is only one example where the coming of age narrative is necessarily mediated through the search for the body of a dead young boy. Other texts are more clearly invested in the body's potential for (self) destruction. In works like Carrie, Thinner and Pet Sematary, fear of the body's destructive potential is dramatized in horrifying detail.

While the conference has a different suggested theme each year, adherence to the suggested theme is not at all necessary to be considered for inclusion in the conference. New Voices invites papers on all topics and themes related not only to English studies, but all other humanities disciplines as well as the social sciences and political science.

The journal is currently accepting manuscripts for publication in 2014 (Volume 41).
