This is a call for papers that deal with literary image(s)/narratives of African civilization(s) of the past. The past is broadly defined. This CFP encourages submissions of papers that involve racial notions of either European civilizational parity/relativism or contrasts.
The panel will engage discussion about representations of heritage/legacy in positive or negative capacities. Papers that entail both positive and negative representations of the African past by various writers are welcome. The papers can also include themes about othering and/or notions of the demise and destruction of civilization. The paper can also involve writings in literature, history, and/or anthropology.
Please submit abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30th.
