Special Issue of NWSA Journal: Latina Sexualities
Guest Editors: Lourdes Torres (DePaul University) and Lorena Garcia (UIC)
The NWSA Journal invites proposals from scholars/activists around the topic of Latina sexualities. This special issue will focus attention on how the relationship between race, ethnicity, sexuality, and power has, and continues to shape Latina sexualities in the U.S. It intends to highlight debates, ideas, and practices relating to the meanings assigned to Latina bodies in the U.S., how Latinas experience their socially regulated bodies, and how those bodies are framed with regard to issues of knowledge, truth, politics, and history.
Articles are invited from the perspectives of activists, artists, independent scholars, faculty, and health practitioners from a broad range of disciplines and fields, that address issues of sexual desire, danger and pleasure, cultural activism, creating and performing sexual identities, human rights and social justice, and citizenship, among other topics.
Submission: Abstracts of 500 words or less are due June 30th, 2008. E-mail your abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Subject heading should read NWSA: ABSTRACT. Abstracts will be reviewed by the guest editors. If your abstract is accepted, you will be invited to submit a manuscript. You will receive a detailed letter with specific author submission instructions and a deadline. Manuscripts will be peer reviewed prior to acceptance for publication in the journal. The special issue is scheduled for release in 2009. If you have any questions about the special issue, contact one of the editors.
