CFP is for MLA 2018 in New York City. This panel on Latinx Literature for Youth will be a Children´s Literature Association (ChLA) sponsored, guaranteed panel.

Literature for youth is an established tradition in Latinx culture, from Jose Martí’s La Edad de Oro (1889) to Pura Belpré’s folklore and Ernesto Galarza’s “mini-libros” to Matt de la Peña’s 2016 Newbery Medal win. This panel seeks to examine the current and historical role of literature for youth in the Latin/a literary world and how Latino/a writers portray youth cultures and subcultures for U.S. audiences. Papers responding critically to the following themes (though not limited to those presented here) are solicited:

This is a Call for Contributions for an EXHIBITION and a BOOK. The EXHIBITION is so far virtual (hosted on www.familylineups.com). All projects will initially be published on our website and will take BOOK form when we have secured a sufficient number of high-quality images.

The title of this project is FAMILY LINE-UPS. Trans-generational Encounters in Family Photography. It is part of a wider research project currently examining the role of family photography in the process of the inter-generational transmission of memory, with a focus on the manner in which exile acted on the structure of the family and the coherence of its genealogy.
