Melville and Black Lives Matter, Modern Language Association


I presented at the Annual Meeting of the Modern Language Association in Philadelphia at the beginning of this year.  My paper, entitled: “‘Sinister Eye’: The Shrouded Women of Melville’s Benito Cereno” was included as part of the “Melville and Black Lives Matter” panel sponsored by The Melville Society.  You can read a full description of the panel and the abstracts of my tremendous co-panelists here.
