The panel will explore expressions of the future in Latina/o theatre,
poetry and performance. Papers may focus on one text or performance, on
works by one author, or on multiple writers/performers within the Latino/a
ethnic group. Papers are sought that explore various kinds of imagined
futures in terms of dystopic or utopic environments, landscapes and
communities; political futures; gendered subjectivities and racial
constructions. I am particularly interested in essays that explore how
these futures are articulated and physically expressed, and hope to get
papers that examine these representations in contemporary Latina/o theatre,
performance and poetry.
Please email abstracts of 300-500 words to Liz Jacobs (
Include with your abstract your name, academic affiliation, contact
information, and a one-page CV.

Deadline for proposals: Jan 5th, 2009
