This is a call for papers that offers analysis of Black sexuality studies in Africa and the African diaspora. Essays may address any time period or geographical region. Those that focus on any form of art by Black artists, including film, literature, song, drama/theater, and visual art are particularly welcome. Studies of historical figures are also encouraged. Some topics to consider: How have Black people’s depictions of sexuality changed over time? How have Black people used forms of art to respond to the colonial or dominant “gaze”?
Black Panther projects Afrotopic advancement and this panel engages Black civilization receptions both in literary form (reading film(s) as text as well as the graphic novel genre) in order to create dialogue about various aspects of African and African diasporic representation.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is among the most prominent and admired young writers of African Europhone fiction. As a Nigerian and Igbo author, she has been linked with one of her renowned predecessors, Chinua Achebe. Indeed Achebe himself paid tribute to Adichie's talent, observing that "Adichie came almost fully made." Clearly one of the influences that shaped that talent has been Achebe's own fiction.
