CFP: Black Women’s Poetry and the Color Line (MLA; 3.15.15)

Black Women’s Poetry and the Color Line

Reevaluating relationships between racial politics, aesthetics, and (non)canonicity in African American women’s poetry from Reconstruction to the Harlem Renaissance.  Topics might include, but are not limited to: thematic or aesthetic divisions within a poet’s oeuvre and/or in contemporary scholarship, negotiations of audience and/or publishing venues, poetry of social protest, etc.

Please send a 250-word abstract and short bio to Heidi Morse (hemorse@umich.edu) by March 15.
