Toni Morrison and Her Legacy

The profound loss of a defining voice of American women’s writing demands our attention as we consider the work of women writers of the past and present.   We invite papers which engage with Morrison’s writing, her work in relation to other women writers, and her legacy as a defining figure in American literature.

We welcome proposals on subjects related to this theme for an SSAWW panel at the American Literature Association conference, May 21-24, 2020, San Diego. 

Proposals may be up to 250 words and should be submitted by January 15, 2020.
