About the Essay Proposals

This CFP seeks essays for the first edited collection on pioneering thinker Mary Ann Shadd Cary, who broke barriers in journalism, law and political activism in Canada and the United States. We are in search of innovative scholarly work from a broad range of inter/disciplinary perspectives including but not limited to historical, literary, gender, ecological, bibliographical, visual, sound, and performance studies. We aim to work across scholarly boundaries of nineteenth-century Black feminist inquiry in North America. Papers chosen for collection will first be presented at a virtual symposium in October, 2021 hosted by Queens University and the Center for Black Digital Research/#DigBlk at Penn State University. We invite proposals (500 words) for potential articles (6000 words) as well as interviews and creative texts (1000-3000 words) for consideration.
