CFP: “Marxism and African Literatures” (Journal Special Issue)

I am delighted to be guest-editing a special issue of the journal African Identities titled “Marxism and African Literatures: New Interventions.” Building upon a successful seminar that I organized at the ACLA in March 2018, the aim is to provide something of a “follow-up” to George M. Gugelberger’s famous 1986 volume of essays, Marxism and African Literature. I am accepting abstracts of 300 words until November 1 2018, with essays of 8000 words (max.) due by February 1 2019. You can find the full CFP on the journal’s website here. Please get in touch with me via email if you have any questions about the special issue.
