African-American autobiography: from the slave narratives to the Autobiography of an ex-colored man

Forskningsoutput: KonferensbidragMuntlig presentation

Sammanfattning

This paper analyzes James Weldon Johnson’s The Autobiography of An Ex-Colored Man as a response to the call of the nineteenth-century slave narratives, arguing that in Johnson’s text we can discern a changing concept of African American subjectivity. The analysis proposes that this changing concept of self is linked to a changing form for the story of that self.
