CAAR Conference Presentation


I'm very excited to find out that I'll be presenting my paper "In Service to the White Creator: The Black Maid Archetype in Ann Petry's The Street and Kathyrn Stockett's The Help" at the CAAR Conference in March. I will be presenting on the panel BLACKNESS AND THE ETHICS OF PERCEPTION: BLACK WOMEN, BLACK BODIES, BLACK TEXT. It also looks like I'll be the only undergraduate presenting. Everyone else is a PhD candidate. No preasure.

From the CAAR site:

CAAR 2013 in Atlanta: DREAMS DEFERRED, PROMISES AND STRUGGLES: PERCEPTIONS AND INTERROGATIONS OF EMPIRE, NATION, AND SOCIETY BY PEOPLES OF AFRICAN DESCENT

The 10th International Conference of CAAR, to be held in Atlanta from March 13 to 16, 2013, continues the work on social transformation in the black world of CAAR 2011 in Paris.

One hundred and fifty years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation and fifty years after the March on Washington and the death of W. E. B. Du Bois, the Collegium for African American Research (CAAR) holds its biennial international conference for the first time in the United States. We are meeting in Atlanta, bastion of the civil rights movement, the home of Martin Luther King Jr., and brief residence of W.E.B. Du Bois.

BTW, The Racism and The Walking Dead post is crazy. Suppose you expect that.

Congratu;ations
Because you are the only undergrad, I hope to attend your presentation. You were under pressure, dear, you spelled "preasure"--or did you really mean "pleasure?"

It was a typo. I'm sure you understand. Thanks for the "congratulations."
