Eaton Publishes Paper in ‘Language Value’

By Purnell T. Cropper | January 30, 2013

Dr. Kalenda Eaton recently published an article in a special issue on “minority literatures” in Language Value (December 2012). The article “Diasporic dialogues: The role of gender, language, and revision in the neo-slave narrative” examines two 20th-century novels whose authors employ the use of satire to discuss slave experience. She explores how the images of Black slave and servant women can either be devalued or empowered depending on authorial representation and intent. Language Value is an international, peer-reviewed journal that “publishes articles, review and commentary essays in linguistics and literature concerned with interdisciplinary analysis of English language use.”
