Pacific Review Special Issue: States of La Frontera

Pacific Review @ SDSU
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 2, 2018

pacificREVIEW is currently hosting an open call for submissions for our 2018 edition, “States of La Frontera” – an interdisciplinary, intersectional collection of work that grapples with the concept and image of “borders” as existing in multiple contexts. “States of La Frontera” refers to the literal and figurative borderlands of space and identity: the physical, geographical, emotional, spiritual, and temporal boundaries and possibilities of being. We are interested in works that embrace and complicate life at the intersection – works that resist hegemony, generalization, and singularity.

From regionalist writers Gene Stratton Porter and Edward Eggleston through modernists Sherwood Anderson and Willa Cather up to contemporary authors Marilynne Robinson and Jeffrey Eugenides, Midwestern literature is often thought to be by and about white people. This is clearly a falsehood.
