Latin American and Spanish Female Voices On Stage: Between Utopia and Dystopia
Notions of “utopia” and “dystopia” have always changed depending on the time period and cultural context. This panel seeks to address how Latin American and/or Spanish drama, of any time period, addresses “utopia” and/or “dystopia” within challenging political, social and ideological contexts. We are particularly interested in how the application of gender and sexuality studies comes to bear on these (con)texts. Presentations will be limited to 20 min. Please include name, affiliation, e-mail address and A/V requirements. Panelists must be members of BOTH Feministas Unidas and SAMLA to participate in the panel. Abstracts in English, Spanish or Portuguese (250 words) due to Eugenia Charoni (echaroni@antiochcollege.org) by May 6.

2. We Crossed The Line. Volume II.
Bilingual/Bicultural Texts from a Transborder Region.

The border has been characterized as a place located on the vanguard, set on the edge, on the margins of two or more cultures that often result in a new and unique dynamic. This place represents not only geographical and geopolitical boundary, but includes metaphorical, gender, class and identity encounters and clashes. The first volume of Nos pasamos de la raya/We Crossed The Line, composed by seventeen texts of diverse genres from fifteen different authors was published on May 2015 and has been widely accepted by critics and the public on both sides of the border.

To keep this transcultural pulse alive and based on the above mentioned themes we call on chronicle, short story, poetry, hybrid and transCgenre works. The writings will be subject to an editorial review and must adhere to the norms stated below in order to be considered. The purpose is to produce a contemporary bilingual/bicultural anthology that reflects the fluid and permeable processes of a transborder identity, that is not limited to the US/Mexico border, but employs a broader more inclusive dynamic intended not just to cross borders, but to transgress them.

3. The Journal of Feminist Scholarship invites submissions that are not currently under consideration or published elsewhere, either in print or in electronic format. The JFS, at this time, can only accept completed work; the editors cannot offer feedback on work in progress.
The Journal of Feminist Scholarship is committed to encouraging a discussion of feminist thought and feminist scholarship for the twenty-first century, their directions today and their relationship to the foundations laid down by twentieth-century feminist inquiry and action. We aim to publish work that explores the multiple theoretical paradigms and political agendas of contemporary feminism and the potential intersections and tensions between these paradigms and agendas. We are especially interested in examining productive controversies and divergences between local and global contexts of feminism. We also welcome submissions that focus on feminist pedagogies and activism.
