W. Lawrence Hogue received his Ph.D in Modern Thought & Literature from Stanford University, with an emphasis on 20th Century American literature, U S Minority literatures, and Critical Theory. He is the author of Discourse and the Other: The Production of the Afro-American Text, which has been republished as an e-book (Duke 1986), Race, Modernity, Post-modernity: A Look at the History and the Literatures of People of Color Since the 1960s (SUNY 1996), The African American Male, Writing, and Difference: A Polycentric Approach to African American Literature, Criticism, and History (SUNY 2003), and Postmodern American Literature and Its Other (Illinois 2009). He wrote the introduction to Clarence Major’s My Amputations (reissued 2008). Currently, he has in manuscript a critical study of postmodern African American fiction, tentatively titled Postmodernism, Traditional Cultural Forms, and African American Narratives, and is researching and writing two critical texts: one on reconfiguring modern America and re-representing the modern American novel and a second one on Primitivism and the Harlem Renaissance. He is the recipient of a Ford Foundation-National Research Council Fellowship, as well as several grants and fellowships here at the University of Houston. He has book reviews, book chapters, and articles published in the major journals and critical anthologies in the academy.
