CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Vox Latinx: Literature and Politics in the Twenty-first Century
Amanda M. Smith, Issue Editor
Alfredo Franco, Creative Editor
John Nieto-Phillips, Editor
Deadline: December 1, 2017
Chiricú Journal: Latina/o Literatures, Arts, and Cultures invites scholarly articles and creative work that reexamine Latinx literatures in relation to our current political moment. The resurgence of white supremacist groups, the politics of immigration, and national advocacy by and for DREAMers and the DACAmented bring urgency to the reading, analysis, and teaching of Latinx literature. We welcome submissions that consider how Latinx literary voices from any time period shed light on contemporary U.S. politics. How have Latinx authors responded to vocabularies of inclusion, exclusion, or (be)longing? How have they shaped notions of citizenship, nation, borders, homeland, and identity? In addition to welcoming scholarly work, we encourage creative submissions in the form of short stories, poems, personal essays, visual work (including art & photography), and other mediums that address Latinx realities in the twenty-first century. Submissions may be in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Indigenous languages, or may involve translingual or polyglossal variations (i.e., Spanglish, Portunhol, Caló, etc.).</p>
