2003 General Issue

Mester, the yearly graduate student academic journal of the Department of
Spanish and Portuguese at UCLA, seeks articles for its general issue to be
published in June 2002. Mester publishes critical articles, interviews, and
book reviews in the fields of Spanish, Portuguese, Spanish-American,
Brazilian and Chicano literatures and linguistics. Mester also welcomes
articles in Comparative Literature, Critical Theory and Cultural Studies.
Articles may be written in Spanish, Portuguese, or English. The journal is
indexed in the MLA International Bibliography of Books and Articles on the
Modern Languages and Literatures.

Our upcoming volume will be a general one open to any topic related to the
scope of the journal. Publication decisions are based solely on the quality
of the submissions, which undergo triple-blind review. Mester is dedicated
to publish work that demonstrates a high level of scholarship, and since
1970 we have built a reputation as one of the best student-run journals in
North America, publishing articles by established scholars alongside the
best work of graduate students.

To be considered for publication, manuscripts should follow the MLA
guidelines. The original and three copies are required for all work. Please
do not write the author’s name on manuscripts but include it in a cover
letter. Submissions that are being considered by another journal or any
other publisher are not accepted. The original of rejected articles will be
returned upon request if sufficient loose postage is provided. The extended
due date is March 15, 2003, but early submissions are encouraged. Send all
requisite materials to: Mester, Dept. of Spanish and Portuguese, UCLA, 5310
Rolfe Hall, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1532. Damian Bacich, editor-in-chief,
