CFP Succotash: critical reflections on the 2008 Presidential campaigns
Eds. María Ochoa, Alvina Quintana, Myra Mendible, Barbara K. Ige

We seek papers that provide a variety of critical frames for the many,
indeed thousands, of exchangesâ€"â€"â€"formal and informal, analytical and
reflectiveâ€"â€"â€"that are brought about and sustained by the 2008 campaigns for
U.S. President and Vice President. We welcome political, social, and
cultural reflections, critiques, and analyses that have stakes in current
discussions by, for, and about U.S. women of color feminist and

The post-1945 Cold War grouping of Communist-bloc countries under the

subverted, or redefined the West and reinvented themselves in the
process. To what extent have the conventions of different literary or
filmic genres been subverted in East-Central Europe? How has capitalism
as a global (Western) “language” been domesticated in this part of
