Call for Chapters - "Re-Reading Appalachia: Literacies of Resistance" [May 26, 2011]

Friday, February 25, 2011 - 6:28pm
Kim Donehower, UND, and Sara Webb-Sunderhaus, IPFW

We invite previously unpublished essays that challenge earlier work and claim new paradigms for discussing the literacy beliefs and practices of Appalachians. We're looking for qualitative pieces that add nuance and sophistication to our understanding of Appalachians and their relationships with print literacy (in both paper and digital forms). We actively seek pieces that represent Southern, Central, and Northern Appalachia, as well as diverse cultures within the region, including but not limited to Affrilachians, Latinos, Melungeons, and gays and lesbians.

Constructing Spaces in Literature, Linguistics and Culture - May 6-7th, 2011

Friday, February 25, 2011 - 4:39pm

13th Annual Conference on Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures, Cultures, and Linguistics
Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of California Santa Barbara


Space as a multidimensional concept has been constructed by humans through languages, arts, politics, and history. Our realities are a result of our interpretation of the space of which we are part. Such spaces are cultural, emotional, and sacred in nature, among others. It also creates limits and boundaries that need to be challenged.
Our intention in this conference is to question and explore such limits and boundaries established by languages, literary works, and cultural movements with an interdisciplinary approach.
