|Call for Papers – Slave Narratives (NeMLA 2014)
This panel seeks fresh approaches to the slave narrative through the lens of the relationship between white editors and the former slaves. How do these narratives portray the encounters between black slaves on the one hand and white editors and characters in or outside the text on the other? How do neo-slave narratives complicate this relationship? And how do, for example, the cinematic contribution to the slave narrative by Tennessee-born director Quentin Tarantino or Valery Martin’s historical novel Property reframe the problem of the white editor? Please submit abstracts to Peter Becker (firstname.lastname@example.org).
