In order to promote dialogue between “East” and “West”, and to also unpack and problematize those categories, we welcome papers that address a broad range of issues, especially in relation to literature, art, film, and popular culture. Interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches are encouraged and especially approaches that focus on contentious political and moral issues. While traditional forms of presentation are welcome, participants may also make use of less conventional modes involving, for example, pictorial essays or the incorporation of social media.

Since the discovery of oil in the 1970s, Gulf Cooperation Countries (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) have employed a large expatriate labor force, primarily from neighboring South Asian Countries of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Philippines.  Recent studies claim that nearly 50.4% of the total population of the Gulf Cooperation Countries are expatriates.  Such mass emigration has not only allowed for the rapid economic expansion of these Gulf countries, but at the same time they have produced a number of cultural and socio-economic consequences for the countries from where Gulf’s primary work forces originate.

As globalization settles in across the planet, the female body continues to be the territory par excellence where political and religious wars resiliently take place. From the Balkan war, to the femicides of Ciudad Juárez and the women facially disfigured by acid throwing, the female body continues to be a threat in the public sphere. This panel explores scholarly ideas on feminist conceptualizations of the female body in the public realm in Spanish-speaking societies vis-à-vis the above-mentioned context.

Paper Title: 100 words max.

Paper Abstract: 300 words max.
