Call for Abstracts: Representations of Refugee, Migrant, and Displaced Motherhood in a Global Context
Contributions are invited for a scholarly edited collection that aims to explore literary accounts of migrant, refugee, and displaced motherhood in a global context. The collection will look primarily at contemporary writings about migrant motherhood. In a world marked by forced migrations, climate change, and wars, the collection aims to examine writings about the displacement of mothers at the American borders, in the Syrian conflict, and beyond.
The mark of humans may now be read in all earthly things, from the strata of the lithosphere to the upper reaches of the stratosphere. The Anthropocene, as many have proposed we call this too human geological and climatological era, calls for a radical reconsideration of the nonhuman world and humanity’s place within it. Human-induced climate change and the sixth extinction have irreparably harmed nonhuman populations and ecosystems, yet humans must also reckon with the destructive climatic forces for which we are in large part responsible. The nonhuman is at once more vulnerable and more destructive than at any time within human history.

For many Latinx communities, the contemporary period can best be described as disastrous: natural disasters like Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico in 2017, followed by the equally disastrous federal response; the sustained crisis at the US southern border, created through a series of cruel, inhumane, extra-legal, and illegal policies; ICE raids at workplaces that force children to come home from their first day of school to find their parents gone; indefinite separation and detention of children and families; US response to the crisis in Venezuela; detention of US citizens for suspicion of being undocumented; mass deportation with no promise of due process.
