Submissions are invited for a collection of critical essays tentatively
titled, Writing Of(f) the Hyphen: Critical Perspectives on the
Literature of the Puerto Rican Diaspora. Our goal is to include
essays covering a wide range of topics, genres and authors that
collectively would offer a broad sense of the literature's development
and presence. We prefer original essays written in English.
Previously published essays will be considered.

Please submit a 2 page abstract or proposal (500-700 words), along with
C.V., by May 30, 2003 to:
