SAR Special Issue on the Work of Lorraine Lopez

updated:

University of North Georgia
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Lorraine López is a powerful emerging voice in Latinx literature. She has published six books of fiction, including Soy la Avon Lady (winner of the inaugural Miguel Mármol prize for fiction) and Call Me Henri (awarded the Paterson Prize for Young Adult Literature), and she has edited or coedited three essay collections. Her work reflects a variety of concerns, specifically regarding the complex cultural practices of Mexican American communities; it confronts issues of identity and representation, gender, sexuality, class, race, culture, and place, among others. Yet, despite her popular success, there is very little scholarship that exists on her work.

Violence: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Project

From ancient gladiators battling to the death in front of cheering crowds to the modern-day journalistic maxim that ‘if it bleeds, it leads’, violence has occupied a prominent place in the human imagination. It is common to see animals in the wild fighting to establish dominance and eliminate potential predators. But when humans engage in similar behaviour, it raises a host of questions about the nature and implications of violence. Why has our capacity for reason, compassion and empathy been insufficient to circumvent our primal urge to use physical force to cause injury, death or other forms of harm? Why has violence exerted an irresistible hold on the human psyche throughout history?

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

I am looking for one essay to fill an empty spot in an edited collection on the television show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. This essay should address the critical reception of the show. The final draft of the essay is needed by March 15, 2019. 

The collection overall argues that the show participates in quality or post-quality television programming through its generic hybridity and diverse cast and storylines. 

If interested, please submit queries and/or a 300-word abstract to akonkle@georgiasouthern.edu by January 31, 2019.
