*CALL FOR SCHOLARLY ESSAYS AND CREATIVE WORKS FOR Label Me Latina/o*

Co-Directors Michele Shaul y Kathryn Quinn-Sánchez announce a special
edition of *Label Me Latina/o *edited by Jill Toliver Richardson

This special edition focuses on the work of Afro-Latino/a writers who are
developing a literary and performance tradition, which delineates an
Afro-Latina/o experience in the United States and defines the elements of
Afro-Latina/o identity. Afro-Latina/o writers within the United States are
producing their own literary tradition that is deeply connected to the
experiences of those of African heritage throughout Latin America and the
Caribbean. Together they are demanding the recognition of Afro-Latinidad
throughout the African diaspora. This issue was conceived in response to
recently published texts, including *The Afro-Latin@ Reader: History and
Culture in the United States *edited by Miriam Jiménez Román and Juan
Flores 2010 (Duke UP), which examine various elements of Afro-Latinidades
and provide diverse conceptualizations of Afro-Latina/o identity within and
beyond the U.S. For this special edition of *Label Me Latina/o, *we are
requesting works that identify and explore the most pertinent topics in
Afro-Latina/o literature and performance including but not limited to
memory, the body, race, nation, diaspora, transnationalism, sexuality,
gender and spirituality. We are also requesting creative works by
Afro-Latina/o writers (US-based) that explore some aspect of the
Afro-Latina/o experience.

*Label Me Latina/o *is an online, refereed international e-journal that
focuses on Latino Literary Production in the twentieth and twenty-first
centuries. The journal invites scholarly essays focusing on these writers
for its biannual publication. The Co-Directors will publish creative works
and interviews in English, Spanish or Spanglish whereas analytical essays
should be written in English or Spanish.

Scholarly submissions should be between 12-30 pages, double-spaced, 12
point font and should follow the MLA Style Manual. Please use End Notes
rather than Footnotes and place page numbers in the upper right hand
corner. Original, unpublished submissions in Microsoft Word (PC compatible
format) should be sent electronically to the editor for this issue: Jill
Toliver Richardson JillTRichardson at msn.com.

We do accept simultaneous submissions of *creative works*. Scholarly
articles under consideration should *not *be submitted elsewhere.

Creative poetry, essays and short fiction should not exceed 30 pages, 12
point font, double-spaced.

Deadline for the Summer 2017 issue: November 4, 2016.

Please include the following information in the body of the email:

• Full name

• Institutional Affiliation

• Telephone number

• Email address

• Regular mail address

• Title of the submission

• A brief biography to be included with publication should your submission
be selected.

*Please make sure that the actual manuscript bears no reference to the
author’s name or institution. *

*Label Me Latina/o *is an academic journal and as such follows the
parameters of definitions set by the academic community. In that community
when we refer to Latina/o Literature, we are referring to writers of Latin
American heritage that live and write in the United States. These can be
first generation Latino or fifth but they live and work here in the U.S.
Some of these writers write in Spanish, others write in Spanglish like the
Nuyorican poets and many of them write in English with a little Spanish
thrown in (or not). Scholarly essays should address the work of these
writers. The authors of these scholarly essays may be of any ethnicity or
nationality.

*Label Me Latina/o *is indexed by the MLA International Bibliography, is
listed in the MLA Directory of Periodicals and is a member of
Latinoamericana: Asociación de Revistas Literarias y Culturales. ISSN
2333-4584
