The Hitchlit Review Seeks Fiction, Poetry, and Creative Nonfiction on the Theme of Women and Secularism
Deadline: November 17, 2017
The Hitchlit Review is seeking high-quality submissions that explore secularism(s) and feminism(s) for our “Women’s Issue.” Some themes we’d love to see explored:
-Education & Secularism
-Romantic Partnerships & Secularism
-Race & Secularism
-Indigenous Feminism & Secularism
-Islamic Feminism & Secularism
The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Junot Díaz, Yusef Komunyakaa and Carolyn Forché, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

One of the central figures in contemporary Chilean film, director Pablo Larraín (b. 1976), presents a harsh portrait of his country’s current reality and of its tortured history in a direct, sometimes surprising, and often controversial oeuvre, never demurring in the face of violence or painful truths about the past. His first feature film, Fuga (2006), which was poorly received by critics, focuses on a composer’s mental health issues; his striking trilogy about Chile’s recent history covers the Pinochet dictatorship in Tony Manero (2008), the last days of the Allende presidency in Post mortem (2010), and the democratic downfall of Pinochet in 1988 in NO (2012).

DATES: April 13-15, 2018
LOCATION: Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA
