1. MLA 2016, Feministas Unidas, Inc. Panel:
“Género, corpografías y espacio público: intersecciones entre cuerpo y palabra”
January 7-10. Austin, Texas

La distinción entre lo público y lo privado ha sido competencia del feminismo desde su creación. El propósito de este panel es explorar lo que implica para las mujeres, ya sea como creadoras literarias o culturales o como sujetos de representación, acceder al espacio público, ya sea en su activismo/presencia en la arena pública, con su cuerpo como mujeres públicas o con sus palabras como mujeres que publican.

**Palabras clave: acceso al espacio público, cuerpo, miedo, palabra, activismo, el público, los públicos que consumen a la mujer.

Resúmenes de 250 palabras en inglés, español, o portugués. Hay que ser miembro de MLA y Feministas Unidas, Inc. para poder presentar en el congreso. Fecha límite: 1 de marzo a Rebecca Ulland (rulland@nmu.edu).
