Subject Area: Latin Americans & Latinos - Identity Issues & Cultural Stereotypes
Cultural, geographical, political, social, emotional, linguistic, and economic borders, among others, define and determine different aspects of our identities, cultures, and social lives along with literatures and arts. In a world charmed by 'globalization', interdisciplinary studies in humanities and social sciences has thrown further lights on the definitions, conceptualizations, roles and functions of borders. They are understood not only in terms of limits, restrictions, and divisions but also in terms of opportunities, possibilities, and reconstructions.

Can the Other Speak? Productive Difficulties in Ethnic and Postcolonial Literature
Our 2020 NeMLA panel emerges from Gayatri Spivak’s seminal question, “can the subaltern speak?” Following Spivak’s response to this question, we will investigate moments when subalterns cannot speak or have difficulty speaking. Our inquiry into these moments will build on and sharpen conversations about otherness with respect to literary texts and beyond.

Seminar Proposal for the American Comparative Literature Association Annual Meeting
March 19-22, 2020
Clothes, as fashion scholar Tanisha Ford writes, serve as a “powerful social skin”. While the selection of what one wears is linked to taste and trends, clothes can also reflect one’s socioeconomic status, age, physical ability, gender, ethnicity, ancestry, and politics. In this way, clothes often function simultaneously as an assertion of one’s individual self and as a mode of publicly claiming community. Its historical role in the construction of identity situates fashion as unique within the material world and, as this seminar suggests, within literary cultures as well.
