The Convergence of Race and Gender in Modern Black Performance

The Convergence of Race and Gender in Modern Black Performance

This call for papers is for a panel to be held at the MSA conference in Chicago, IL, Nov. 3-6, 2005.  As Houston Baker explains in  Modernism and the Harlem Renaissance performance plays a major role in  defining black

literature.

Papers could explore any of the following themes:

Respectability

Kinship

Community

The Body

Language

History

Sexuality

Identity

Time

Space

Mobility
