After a hiatus, the Latina/x Feminisms Roundtable is back! You are invited to participate in the 2022 meeting that will take place through ZOOM as it is still difficult and too risky to travel during a continuing pandemic.
The Latina/x Feminisms Roundtable is a forum for discussion of Latina/x and Latin American Feminisms.
This year we pause to reflect on the various ways in which Latinas/xs engaged in practices of self-care and communal care as we continue to face a pandemic that ravaged communities of color.
How can the space of the roundtable serve to support one another and to share our stories and intellectual projects? How do we inhabit this space as a space of possibilities and world-making in difficult times?
We invite you to send abstracts on themes connected to Resistance, Love, and Survival in Precarious times. Please send abstracts on any of the following themes:
Responses to the “Arrebato,” Anzaldúa’s name for experiences that frighten us
Bodies and Vulnerability
Mourning and Remembering our dead
The Biopolitics of the Pandemic
The Aesthetic in times of Sorrow
Other suggested themes include Latinas/x and Latin American feminist engagement in
Blackness and Latinidad
Central American Studies
Brownness and Trans
Latina/x Decolonial Feminisms
Coalitions Across differences
Works on individual Latina/x or Latin American feminist writers and theorists
