UTEP: African American Studies Program

DIASPORAS IN DIALOGUE

The Program in African American Studies at the University in Texas at El Paso invites articles on the intersection between Activism, Scholarship, and Creative Writing in works by women in the African Diaspora, as well as on the relationship between the work of African diasporic women and women from other diasporas, such as Mexican, Filipina, Haitian, and Chinese migrant communities in the United States and beyond.

The editors of this collection are interested in the ways diasporic women writers, scholars, and activists conceptualize diasporic identities and negotiate multiple diasporic alliances in their creative work, research, teaching, and daily lives.
