Call for Papers

I am convinced that fellows like me who live in dark cellars must be kept
under restraint. They may be able to live in their dark cellars for forty
years and never open their mouths, but the moment they get into the light
of day and break out they may talk and talk and talk…

Cooking Latino: Food, Writing, and Identity in Contemporary Latino/a
Literature
Scholarly essays are sought for a volume on Food, Writing, and Identity
as represented in literary works by Latino and Latina authors published
from the 1960’s until today. We are interested in the ways food
references and culinary metaphors in these texts create culture,
ethnicity, gender, class, religion, history and citizenship, and in the
ways theoretical examinations of cooking and eating bear on the
disciplines of critical studies, feminism, postmodernism, and
postcolonialism.
