The negotiation of Latina/o identities requires an understanding of ethnicities, language(s), religion(s), social class, gender, as well as the psychology of one’s own and others’ ideologies. How do Latino/a authors represent their complex worlds while capturing the immigrant experience where each character must negotiate his/her identity markers to claim ‘self-recognition’? Papers that address any aspect of Latino/a identity in narrative, poetry or theatre are welcome for this panel.
