We are soliciting contributions for a volume on Hispanic Women Writers (both Peninsular and Latin American) titled Hispanic Women Writers in the 21st Century: Shaping Gender, the Environment, and Global Politics.

This volume seeks to evaluate and explore the different ways in which Hispanic writers are currently integrating global issues and gender concerns into their writing. We are soliciting contributions on both Peninsular and Latin American writers, all genres included.

Suggested topics:

  1. Hispanic women and gender: Writing towards a more nuanced understanding of the sexes in the postmodern age
  2. Women's attitudes towards the environment in the Hispanic world—How have ecological concerns shaped female writing in recent decades?
  3. Exploring the male/violence versus female/pacifism paradigm in current Hispanic literature
  4. Women's writing and globalization: In what ways are modern global issues (pluralism, social justice, gender equality, tolerance, political representation) prominent in female texts in the Hispanic world?
  5. Writing as a social and political weapon: What techniques and strategies do Hispanic female writers use nowadays to shape the cultural and political environment in their countries?

Please send the title and a one-to-two page description of your proposal, as well as a brief biographical note, by September 30th 2010 to the editors:

Estrella Cibreiro, Professor of Spanish, College of the Holy Cross,

Francisca López, Professor of Spanish, Bates College,

Please be sure to send all information, as well as any queries, to both editors.
