SAR Special Issue on the Work of Lorraine Lopez

updated: 
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 9:41am
University of North Georgia
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Lorraine López is a powerful emerging voice in Latinx literature. She has published six books of fiction, including Soy la Avon Lady (winner of the inaugural Miguel Mármol prize for fiction) and Call Me Henri (awarded the Paterson Prize for Young Adult Literature), and she has edited or coedited three essay collections. Her work reflects a variety of concerns, specifically regarding the complex cultural practices of Mexican American communities; it confronts issues of identity and representation, gender, sexuality, class, race, culture, and place, among others. Yet, despite her popular success, there is very little scholarship that exists on her work.
