Voicing the Future in Latina/o Literature
The panel will explore expressions of the future in Latino/a theatre, poetry and performance. Papers may focus on one text or performance, on works by one author, or on multiple writers/performers within the Latino/a ethnic group. Papers are sought that explore various kinds of imagined futures in terms of dystopic or utopic environments, landscapes and communities; political futures; gendered subjectivities and racial constructions. I am particularly interested in essays that explore how these futures are articulated and physically expressed, and hope to get papers that examine these representations in contemporary Latina/o theatre, performance and poetry.
Please email abstracts of 300-500 words to Liz Jacobs (firstname.lastname@example.org). Include with your abstract your name, academic affiliation, contact information, and a one-page CV.
Deadline for proposals: Jan 5th, 2009
