American Women Writers of Color Conference

Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel,
Ocean City, MD
November 1-3, 2013

For more than ten years, Salisbury University proudly hosted the American Women Writers of Color Conference, and we are delighted to reinvigorate this meeting anew. The 2013 conference features scholarship on women writers of color of the Americas (North, South, and Central) of a variety of periods and genres. This year’s program includes a special session sponsored by Legacy, which remains the lone scholarly journal dedicated to seventeenth- to twentieth-century American women's writings.

Our keynote speaker is Daphne Brooks, Professor of English and African-American Studies at Princeton University. She is the author of Bodies in Dissent: Spectacular Performances of Race and Freedom, 1850-1910; Jeff Buckley's Grace; and the forthcoming work Subterranean Blues: Black Women Sound Modernity. Michelle Myers (of Yellow Rage) and world-renowned Grenadian poet and writer Merle Collins will also read from their works. Please join us for what promises to be a wonderful program!

* The registration fee is used to offset the cost of the conference (speakers, banquet, meals, hotel costs, printing, and etc.).
