Prequels: African American Archives
Wed, February 19, 2014 • 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM • Denius Seminar Room, Harry Ransom Center
Inspired by the work of UT alumnus Eve Dunbar, E3W Prequels invites you to a roundtable exploring the work, life, and archives of prominent twentieth-century African American writers. On Wednesday, Feb. 19th from 3:00 to 4:30pm in the Denius Seminar Room at the Harry Ransom Center, panelists Dr. Jennifer Wilks, Sequoia Maner, and Laura Wallace will lead us through a display of some of the HRC’s correspondence, manuscripts, and materials of Claude McKay, Langston Hughes, and James Baldwin. The roundtable will be moderated by Dr. Neville Hoad. All are welcome, but space is limited, so please arrive 15 minutes early.
This Prequels event is held in anticipation of the 13th Annual Sequels Symposium, which will take place April 10-11 at the University of Texas at Austin. Sequels, an annual symposium sponsored by the Ethnic and Third World Literatures specialization in the Department of English, hosts distinguished E3W graduates and honors their recently published books. This year's keynote speakers are Eve Dunbar (Dean of the Faculty & Associate Professor of English, Vassar College) and Kenneth Kidd (Chair, Department of English, University of Florida). Please save the date - we hope you can join us!
