1. Dusanic, Dunja. "One Language, One Nation, One Literature? The Debates on ‘Yugoslav’ Literature 1913-1919" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEEES Convention, Washington Marriott Wardman Park, Washington, DC, <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: For a brief time, in the period immediately preceding and following the First World War, the issue of a unified ‘Yugoslav’ (i.e. Serbian, Croatian and Slovenian) literature was at the forefront of literary discussions in Belgrade and Zagreb. The debates which began in 1913-1914, on the pages of the Serbian Literary Herald (Srpski književni glasnik), with Jovan Skerlić’s survey of public opinion concerning the linguistic foundation of Serbo-Croatian literature, and continued, from 1917 to 1919, in periodicals such as the Literary South (Književni jug) and the Croatian Field (Hrvatska njiva), seemed more preoccupied with the question of dialect and alphabet, than with the task of establishing a shared literary tradition or a joint literary ’agenda’. Based on the erroneous notion that the existence of a shared language implies the existence of a single nation whose unity is simultaneously corroborated and enhanced by the existence of a single national literature, these debates left many questions unanswered and bore few tangible results. Interestingly, some of their participants were to become the authors of influential manuals and histories of ‘Yugoslav’ literature, which defined the canon of national literature for subsequent generations. If books such as Pavle Popović’s Yugoslav Literature (1st ed. 1917), Dragutin Prohaska’s Overview of Contemporary Croatian-Serbian Literature (1st ed. 1921), Miloš Savković’s Yugoslav Literature for secondary schools (1st ed. 1932) and, later on, Antun Barac’s Yugoslav Literature (1st ed. 1954), failed to articulate the desired vision of a shared literary tradition, they did leave behind the highly problematic notion of ‘Yugoslav’ literature, whose heritage is still visible today.

4. Harrison, Rashida. "Literature Performs the Blues: An Exploration of Black Women’s Protest Literature as a Blues Narrative for Urban Black Woman" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History, Atlanta Hilton, Charlotte, NC, Oct 02, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: In this paper, I will explore Classic Blues Women’s relationship to traditional black protest literature- specifically, literature written by black women, about black women’s lives. This paper is concerned with those literary traditions that characterize the urban environment as providing an escape from the disenfranchised south, while fostering individualistic and alienating communities. Ann Petry’s The Street (1946) is one such work that serves as a sight of interrogation for black women’s literary performance of the blues. The Street’s blues theme echoes the sentiments that the city acts as a foreground for the eventual destruction, alienation, and un-communal community of black men and women. Angela Davis highlights some of the major themes occurring in classic women’s blues, including, economic desolation, the pathological relationships between black men and women, the distrust amongst black women, the everyday push for survival, as well as community empowerment in her Blues Legacies and Black Feminism (1998). She discusses the performance of classic blues as protest in that it has the potential to foster socio-political change. The Street can act as the backdrop for how Davis and other writers articulate the intentions and muse for black women blues artist. The life of the protagonist Lutie, illustrates how the environment molds and shapes the sentiments, attitudes, and overall spirit of blues women. Both the performance and written blues narratives are critical to black women’s articulation of their lived experiences in urban environments

Publication Type: Concurrent Presentation
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: This presentation presents the results of a comprehensive literature synthesis and meta-analysis of educational games and simulations literature published between 2000 to 2010. One hundred seventy-eight articles met the inclusion and exclusion criteria to be included in this study. Preliminary results suggest that research on educational games and simulations is lacking critical information about the interventions under investigation. That is, more information about the games and simulations used in the studies should be provided.
