The American University of Paris
31, Avenue Bosquet
The Conference will represent broad international and interdisciplinary explorations of Wright’s life and writing, with a special emphasis on the Paris he inhabited (1947-1960), both what it was and what it is today as a result of the marks he left behind, and on his experiences in Africa.
On June 21 at 1 p.m., I will chair the panel Modern Urban Anxieties in the World of Richard Wright and present a talk entitled “Men Out of Place: Richard Wright and the Fearful Fifties.”
Joining me on the panel are:
Richard A. Courage. Westchester Community College; James S. King. Salisbury University, Salisbury MD; and Roland E. Bush. California State University.
