Ethnic identity is twin skin to linguistic identity--I am my language. Until I can take pride in my language, I cannot take pride in myself.
The Marilynne Robinson Society will be hosting a panel on a wide variety of topics connected to Robinson’s essays and novels at the annual conference of the American Literature Association in San Diego. Given the special conference theme of frontiers and borders, papers that attempt to engage with this theme are particularly welcome. Please submit abstracts of around 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2020.
