Dr. Warren J. Carson (English/Academic Affairs) has contributed a chapter to The Cambridge History of African American Literature, edited by Maryemma Graham and Jerry Ward, just out this year from Cambridge University Press. The title of Dr. Carson’s chapter, “Racial ideologies in theory and practice: political and cultural nationalism, 1865-1910,” covers the essayistic response of black writers to the Reconstruction and Post Reconstruction periods and the work of black writers between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of the Harlem Renaissance. In addition to his administrative post, Dr. Carson is Professor of English and African American Studies and currently serves as President of the College Language Association.
