  The co-editors of (Re)Interpretations: The Shapes of Justice in Women's Experience, to be published by Cambridge Scholars Press, Ltd. in late 2007, seek scholars interested in contributing a chapter.

Garcia Puente, Maria

Immigration is a phenomenon that contemporary societies struggle with. In this context the figure of the foreigner is a good scenario to explore the dynamics and tensions of cultures in contact. The liminal perspective provided by the outsider adds a new interpretation of our own reality, questioning the foundations of the canonical culture and our own identities. "What appear to be cultural units-human beings, words, meanings, ideas, philosophical systems, social organizations-are maintained in their apparent unity only through an active process of exclusion, opposition, and hierarchization.

CFP: Cinematic Homesick Blues (10/15/06; SASA,
2/14/07-2/18/07)

This panel for the Southern American Studies Association
(SASA) will explore filmic uses of the blues and southern
music as an ethnic and/or regional signifier. Of particular
interest is the blues as signifier not only of place but of
time, i.e., blues as signifier for nostalgia and/or the
past. Other areas of interest include but are not limited
to: the filmic relationship between visual images and the
blues, diegetic versus nondiegetic uses of the blues, and
transcultural uses of the blues.
