Ta-Nehisi Coates’ ascendancy carries the hallmarks of a Horatio Alger tale.  With his 2015 recognition as a MacArthur Genius and a National Book Award winner, his rise from humble beginnings to illustrious acclaim acquired a nearly storybook sheen.  A “rags to riches” account of his success holds immense charm; however, such an explanation does not offer a full picture of his significance.  Coates’ path from brief attendance at Howard University to star blogger, renowned Atlantic feature reporter, and worldwide phenomenon intersects with fascinating developments in 21st century literature and intellectual history.  Unfolding in a post-9/11 world, his career limns several trends in contemporary culture, chief among them the democratization of blac

CFP for NeMLA 2017 Annual Convention in Baltimore, MD. http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention.html

Students in creative writing workshops often lack reading experience and knowledge, but demonstrate awareness and analysis of film and television. Graphic literature can be used to transition from the terminology and rhetorical understanding they possess to the writing and feedback skills the workshop demands. This roundtable seeks to present and discuss both recommended texts and strategies to engage students and encourage their creative writing. Theoretical and practical approaches to this method are welcome.

Academic and scientific study of popular culture has only gained prominence in the 20th century, first with the Leavisites’ criticism of mass culture (as yet another form of the popular), then with the comprehensive work on the concept of ‘Critical Theory’ within the Frankfurt School. The latter half of the century saw, especially after the foundation of the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, a rise in theories, definitions and approaches to popular culture so great that it occasioned Harold Bloom’s disparaging remark “that there is no future for literary studies as such in the United States. … At NYU I am surrounded by professors of hip-hop.

Duality and Duplicity in African-American Literature

The idea that African-Americans are actual and full-fledged citizens of the United States is not a new one; the racism that prevents that idea to flourish is also not new.  Recent events, including the death of Freddie Carlos Gray, Jr. in Baltimore, have brought to the fore the question of whether or not the United States values its black citizens, and extends to them the same rights as it does to its non-black citizens.  The historical record has much to say on this point, but the literary record also is instructive in perceptions of race in the United States.

Kubrick Studies in recent years has come to be dominated by historical approaches, informed largely by the Stanley Kubrick Archive. Though these new methodologies have progressed our understanding of Kubrick’s operations as a film director, it does not resolve the intellectual, formal and aesthetic motivations that underpin his work.

CFP: Virginia Woolf Miscellany special topics issue: Virginia Woolf and Indigenous Literatures This issue of the Virginia Woolf Miscellany seeks essays that consider Woolf’s oeuvre in dialogue with works by Native American, First Nations, Australian, and New Zealander authors, among others. What kind of dialogic emerges when placing Woolf’s writings alongside those of indigenous writers? How might indigenous literatures enhance interpretations of Woolf’s modernist, feminist, and pacifist poetics? How might such comparisons affect or inform understandings of subjectivity in women’s lives and literature, and the interconnections between narrative innovation and socio-political activism?
