deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 1, 2021

Contemporary Latinx writers, visual artists, dancers, and performance artists enact, embody, cross, and defy multiple borders –  those of nation, gender, race, language, climate, species, among others – in their work. In doing so they often draw on indigenous and other inherited forms of cultural expression, reclaiming and resignifying them in the process. The tension between the desire to belong to a rooted community and the longing to break away from a prescriptive collective is a hallmark of Latinx expression on various borders – ranging from the Chihuahuan desert to the Massacre River.
