Roundtable Discussion on Banning Literary Texts
Times: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Oct 03, 2013
 
Recently a school board in North Carolina banned Ralph Ellison's novel Invisible Man, concluding that the text lacked "literary value." This roundtable will address the topic of "literary merit," "pornographic" content," and other areas related to the current trend in the interdiction against literary texts by African American authors. It seeks to provide an open forum for discussing the significance and effects of the trend.

Panelists:

Susanne Dietzel, Ph.D., Director of the Women's Center,

Ayesha Hardison, Ph.D., Associate Professor of English,

Gary Holcomb, Ph.D., Professor of African American Literature,

Amritjit Singh, Ph.D., Langston Hughes Professor of English and African American Studies

All are welcome! Light refreshments will be available.

Location: Alden Library 319
