Call for Panel and paper Proposals
CHICANA/CHICANO LITERATURE, FILM, CULTURE
The Southwest/Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Associations will hold their 26th annual meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 9 through 12, 2005. The organizations have met there for several years, and members wanted to return because of the great location, the fine hotels, food, sights, museums, and more.
Panels and individual papers on all aspects of Chicana and Chicano culture are encouraged for our 2005 meeting. The “Chicana/Chicano Literature, Film, Culture” area tends to be both multicultural and interdisciplinary, and panels and individual papers may explore any issues relevant to Chicana/Chicano cultural studies.
Presentations might examine themes relevant to Chicana/Chicano culture and politics including but not limited to
“resistance and affirmation”
nationalism and ethnic separatism
borders, frontiers, and territorialization
labor unions and social collectivity
machismo, feminidad, feminisms, and gender construction
immigration, internal colonialism, and indigenismo
religion and spirituality
mainstream depictions and ethnic stereotyping
La Raza Cosmica and cultural syncretism
Topics might traverse distinctions within cultural expressions and specific genres—corridos, mitos, folklore, poetry, fiction, drama, film, television. Presentations might cover theoretical and/or creative and/or historical works by individual authors such as Jose Vasconcelos, Rudy Acuna, Luis Valdez, George I. Sanchez, Gloria Anzaldua, Ana Castillo, Cherrie Moraga, and others.
Proposals that address any aspect of Chicana/Chicano culture are welcome.
PLEASE SEND (email preferred) SUBMISSIONS BY NOVEMBER 30th.
