Heritage Papers. Hispanic Americans: Reclaiming Cultural Heritage, 19th-21st centuries
Call for Papers Deadline:
This volume seeks to explore the many facets of the Hispanic American experience, from encounters with Anglo-Americans during the nineteenth century through life in the United States in the early twenty-first century. Papers should focus on the social, economic, and political efforts made by Hispanics to maintain, reclaim, or expunge their cultural heritage when confronted with other cultures within the modern-day borders of the United States.
Of interest are such issues as:
Reasons for leaving the original homeland and the resulting problems and/or benefits to those who left as well as to those who remained behind
the development of support systems such as ethnic neighborhoods, organizations, and societies
the consequences of association or intermarriage with other ethnic groups
the images portrayed through such media as paintings, text, and film
opportunities for and contributions to education, employment, and community and political activism.
