The Gloria Naylor Archive invites paper and panel proposals for a symposium on Gloria Naylor’s public and private writing and on Black feminist archival methodologies more broadly. The symposium seeks proposals that explore new directions in Naylor scholarship and/or explore how recently accessible archival materials open up new avenues for understanding Naylor’s published work and unpublished plays, screenplays, correspondence. The aim of the symposium is to create a dynamic space for scholars to share work in progress and to learn more about Naylor’s collected papers.

Deadline for submission: July 1, 2021
