"Sovereign Bodies, Movements, and Imaginaries"

The peer-reviewed journal Voces del Caribe invites proposals for a special issue titled “Sovereign Bodies, Movements, and Imaginaries” edited by Joshua Deckman (Marywood U) and Ana Ugarte (College of the Holy Cross). This issue is a follow-up to a series of panels to be presented in Spring 2021, which bring together faculty and graduate students from a broad array of disciplines with the aim of fostering collaborative research and activism. Our tasks: to identify and explore new paradigms for understanding “sovereignties” across the globe, and to construct new cartographies of cultural creation and circulation beyond the confines of modern nation-states.

For this issue, we invite contributions that intersect with one or more of the themes that will
be discussed by our panelists:

• Human Geography, Space, Place
• Dystopian and Utopian Narratives
• New Media: Netflix, blogging
• Race, Gender, Sexuality, (Dis)ability and Social Movements
• Migrations and Borders

In keeping with the collaborative nature of the conference panel, we also welcome co-
authored articles, visual pieces, and experimental formats.

Please send a proposal of no more than 500 words to Joshua R. Deckman (jdeckman@maryu.marywood.edu) by February 15th, 2021. Authors will be informed of provisional acceptance by March 1st, and full articles (6,000-8,000 words) will be due by July 30, 2021. We hope to publish in the Fall 2021 issue of Voces.
