Creator of Tracy Beaker and one of Britain's top writers for children, there's hardly a young person in the UK that hasn't heard of Jacqueline Wilson. The most borrowed author in Britain's libraries, over 30 million copies of Wilson's books have been sold in the UK alone and they have been translated into 34 different languages. Amongst her awards are the Smarties Prize, the Guardian Children's Fiction Award and the Royal TV Society Best Children's Fiction Award. Jacqueline was Children's Laureate from 2005-07 and was awarded an OBE in 2002 for services to literacy in schools. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson when she was awarded a DBE.

'Qui parle Europe a tort. Notion géographique'. Otto von Bismarck's elliptic remark, scribbled in the margin of a letter from Alexander Gorchakov in 1876, would go on to become one of the most often-quoted statements about Europe. But was Bismarck right? Is Europe nothing but a geographical notion? Even the briefest glance at history shows that more often than not perceptions and definitions of Europe go beyond the mere geographical demarcation of a continent. In 1919, for instance, Paul Valéry imagined Europe as a living creature, with 'a consciousness acquired through centuries of bearable calamities, by thousands of men of the first rank, from innumerable geographical, ethnic and historical coincidences'.

In "The Curtain: An Essay in Seven Parts," Milan Kundera observes that Central Europe is rarely perceived as an important region in Europe. Indeed, he attests that the nations that create Central Europe 'have never been masters of either their own destinies or their borders.' As such, the countries that form Central Europe have been viewed as extensions of thriving European countries, such as Germany. Yet, the subordination of Central European countries to either Western or Eastern European nations has had drastic impacts on the writers that emerged from this region, as they have been forced to write in non-native languages, have endured political oppression, and weathered several political upheavals.

As a nation, we tend to homogenize Hispanics; even the term itself is problematic, due to the fact that it removes the specificity belonging to each Spanish-speaking nation and the cultures within it. As a multicultural nation, there is much to learn from Latinos and as our society expands to include these unique cultures, I hope this panel in Latina/o Studies will do its part in effacing stereotypes and prejudices that sadly, are still common-place today.
Papers that address the languages and/or identities of Latinas/os in literature, theatre, or film are welcome. Suggestions: the diverse histories, cultures, identity politics, migration patterns, or other aspects of Latina/o populations in the United States.

Identity


'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I—I hardly know, sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'
       — from Alice in Wonderland
