th Annual Conference: May 23-26, 201 

Westin Copley Place, Boston, MA

 

Deadline: January 2, 2019

 

In the past, the Latina/o/x Literature and Culture Society has organized panels that focus on literary genre, single authors, children’s literature, speculative fiction, comparative analyses, as well as cultural studies approaches. This year, we welcome a variety of theoretical and interdisciplinary approaches, as well as a variety of panel types, including traditional paper sessions, roundtable discussions, and sessions dedicated to the teaching of Latina/o/x literature. Given the location of the Conference in Boston, we solicit proposals focused on Latina/o/x experiences in Boston and the East Coast more broadly.

 

Topics for proposed sessions are open. In the spirit of community building, the Latina/o/x Literature and Culture Society attempts to build sessions that bring together participants at various stages of their careers.

 

Please submit proposals for individual papers as well as full panel and roundtable sessions.

 

  • For individual papers, send a short abstract (150 words) with title, along with institutional affiliation, academic title, and contact information.
  • For panel proposals, send paper titles, short abstracts for each paper, (150 words), along with institutional affiliation, academic title, and contact information for each panelist and the panel chair.

 

 

DEADLINE: JANUARY 2, 2019.
