After winning a presidential race characterized by scandal and bigotry, President Donald Trump has set his sights on undocumented migrants, some of  whom have lived in relative safety under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals  (DACA) program. DACAmented youth are being detained and deported while Trump’s executive orders targeting undocumented persons are newly punishing sanctuary cities and mobilizing funds to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

Free Range: An Open Inquiry into the Nonhuman in Latinx Studies

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 - 9:31am
NeMLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

In this panel, we propose to explore the roles of human-nonhuman encounters in the field of Latinx Studies and Literature at large. How do animal, human, botanical, and epistemological bodies alter the way we approach ontological interpretations in Latinx texts, visual art, and/or performances? In addition to these concerns, this Call for Papers seeks work that traverses a varied range of bodies and utilizes interdisciplinary frameworks in innovative ways. Topics might include, but are not limited to: race and animal studies, transgender bodies and queering the nonhuman, corporeal ecologies, critical approaches to landscapes, bodies of land, and water.
