Printing Latinidad: The Power of Paper in Latina/o Literature, PAMLA, 10/31-11/2 [Extended Deadline: 5/31]

updated: 
Friday, May 23, 2014 - 11:50pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association, Riverside Convention Center

Paper has played a critical role in Latina/o literary production. Though recent interest in Latina/o print culture foregrounds the importance of print materials in a way that emphasizes community histories, identities, and political ideologies, paper itself is under examined. This panel looks toward a more concise consideration of the physical and material power of paper as a principle agent of analysis. How does paper coalesce Latina/o identities, social bodies, and cultural formations? How did the proliferation of Latina/o liberation movements result in the reciprocal generation of paper production?

[REPOST] Edited Collection on the Aesthetics and Politics of Hunger (15 June, 2014)

updated: 
Thursday, May 22, 2014 - 4:27pm
Manisha Basu and Anastasia Ulanowicz

Within the past 50 years, practitioners of cultural studies and the humanities more generally have addressed the question of hunger in terms of the immediate, individual body. For example, scholars such as Susan Bordo have considered the ways in which individual practices of self-imposed hunger (for example, anorexia and bulimia) have played a significant role in the maintenance of Western, patriarchal standards of beauty and heteronormative relations. Although this present study acknowledges the contributions made by earlier interventions such as Bordo's, it ultimately seeks to address the question of hunger within a wider, historical-materialist framework.
