2005 Call for Papers, General Issue

Mester, the yearly graduate student academic journal of the Department of
Spanish and Portuguese at UCLA, seeks articles for its upcoming general
issue to be published in June 2005.

Our upcoming volume will be a general one open to any topic related to the
scope of the journal. 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.

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. The journal is indexed in the MLA
International Bibliography of Books and Articles on the Modern Languages
and Literatures.

To be considered for publication, manuscripts should not exceed 25
double-spaced pages, including endnotes; and must follow the MLA

institutional affiliation, email and work and/or home address. Please
