Predavanje: Silence and Evasion in the American Racial Gothic
Profesor Charles Crow, Fulbright gost profesor na Odsjeku za anglistiku, održat će predavanje pod naslovom "Silence and Evasion in the American Racial Gothic" u petak, 15. lipnja, u 12:30h u sobi A-309.
"Silence and Evasion in the American Racial Gothic" investigates the silence and evasion that is at the core of American racial discourse. In particular, it investigates this pattern in fiction about racial mixing, that most charged of American topics, and the pattern of "suppressed genealogy" in several American Gothic texts. Silence and evasion, it will be argued, were survival strategies of enslaved Africans, taught through oral tradition, and became Gothic tropes in fiction by both black and white authors writing about the intertwined secrets of American families.
