updated: 
Thursday, June 7, 2012 - 4:51pm
NeMLA /Sponsored by Tufts University /March 21-24, 2013

The negotiation of Latin@ identities within space—cities, universities, homes, exile, —requires an understanding of ethnicities, language(s), religion(s), social class, gender, as well as the psychological spaces where one needs to defend him/herself in the face of a pejorative labels from the dominant group or from a more powerful member of one's own group. How do Latino/a authors represent their worlds through the use of space whereby each character or voice must negotiate his/her identity markers within a specific space to claim "self-recognition"?

Papers that address any aspect of Latino/a identity in narrative, poetry or theatre are welcome for this panel.

Echoes of Home: Bringing Home to Work

Call for Proposals:
As academics, we often feel disconnected from the outside world and even from our roots, our homes--where we're from. We feel like impostors--sometimes at work, sometimes at home. This placelessness often felt in academia manifests in graduate school when, as Donald Troop recently discussed in The Chronicle of Higher Education, grad students can feel "they're somehow not smart enough or that they're fooling people—that they feel like impostors." Maybe these feelings are common in times of transition (home-to-graduate-school, graduate-school-to-Assistant-Professor), but for some of us, that transition seems neverending.
