MLA Special Session—A Radical New Vision: Popular Visual Culture and African-American Self-Fashioning
Abstract due by March 9th
We are inviting proposals for a possible special session that asks how African-American writers and artists—from the end of the U.S. Civil war through the end of World War I—revised, re-mixed, and rejected popular images of Blackness in their struggle to shape alternative modes of seeing and being seen.
The American Antiquarian Society is launching a new initiative with a conference and workshop to explore critical, historical, and practical challenges of archival research and access, offering project-based development and discussion focused on the AAS’s unparalleled holdings in pre-1876 books, manuscripts, newspapers, and graphic arts.
