LITERATURE OF AFRICA AND THE DIASPORA
This session seeks papers that will focus on the literary production of African and African Diaspora writers whose work recreates, responds, counters, or otherwise wrestles with outside, outdated, or clichéd images of Africa. Literary attributes to consider might include any of the following and more: language, characterization, setting, thematic content, voicing, and perspective. Papers should seek to address the question of how African writers re-invent images of Africa and why. By May 15, 2010, please send proposals of no more than 250 words for a 15- to 20-minute presentation to Justin Colussy-Estes, Georgia Perimeter College, at Justin.Estes@gpc.edu.
