"I've Known Rivers": Water in Black Literary Consciousness
We seek innovative proposals for a special session on the trope of water in the diasporic black literary consciousness. We are particularly interested in research that engages water through the lens of migration, memory and access. This includes, but is not limited to such topics as transatlantic crossings, water and black spirituality in addition to the excess of or limited access to water.
