This call for papers is for contributions to an edited collection of essays on the life and work of Black and British writer Bernadine Evaristo.

Bernadine Evaristo is one of the most prolific writers of Black British fiction. She has written eight novels and received a number of literary awards and prizes, and yet she remains eclipsed by writers like Zadie Smith, Caryl Phillips, and Andrea Levy. Bernadine Evaristo: An Edited Collection of Essays will help showcase Evaristo's talent, innovation, and contribution to Black and British arts and letters. This collection of essays will serve as an important scholarly resource for academics working in the areas of Black British Literature, Women's Literature, Contemporary British Literature, Post Colonial studies, and Cultural studies. The essays in the collection will provide analysis of Evaristo's complete body of work, and it will cover a range of topics. Papers for this collection should focus on Evaristo's writing in relationship to questions about Black British identity, Nationhood, Satire, History, Mixed Raced Identity, and Popculture.
