This panel will examine U.S. race relations and ethnic identity through the lens of literary reception. How do communities of readers overlap or stray beyond communities of race? How have reviewers, reading clubs, and classrooms played a part in the social construction of race? Special consideration will be given to papers on cross-racial patterns of reading and misreading.
Deadline: September 30, 2013
Please send 250-500 word abstracts to Luke Dietrich (firstname.lastname@example.org) with ‘Race and Reception’ in subject line.
Please include with your abstract:
