31/8/2019 – CFP: Histories and Cultures of Latinas: Suffrage, Activism and Women’s Rights

What, when & where

The XV Recovery conference will convene in Houston from February 20 to 22, 2020 to continue the legacy of scholars meeting to discuss and present their research. The conference theme invites scholars—including archivists, librarians, linguists, historians, critics, theorists and community members–to share examples of the cultural legacy they are recovering, preserving and making available about the culture of the Hispanic world whose peoples resided here, immigrated to or were exiled in the United States over the past centuries. This conference foregrounds the work of Latinas that focuses on women’s rights, suffrage and education as we usher in a new phase of feminist critical genealogies. We seek papers, panels and posters in either English or Spanish that highlight these many contributions, but also offer us critical ways to rethink issues of agency, gender, sexualities, race/ethnicity, class and power. Of particular interest are presentations about digital humanities scholarship, methods and practices on these themes.

The end date for Recovery research and themes will now be 1980 in order to give scholars, archivists, linguists and librarians the stimulus needed to begin recovering the documentary legacy of the 1960s and 1970s, which is fast disappearing. We encourage papers or panels that make use of archival research that provokes a revision of established literary interpretations and/or historiographies. Papers or posters on locating, preserving and making accessible movement(s) documents generated by Latinas and Latinos in those two decades will be welcome. Studies on the following themes, as manifested before 1960, will be welcome:

Digital Humanities
Analytical studies of recovered authors and/or texts
Critical, historical and theoretical approaches to recovered texts
Curriculum development: Integrating recovered texts into teaching at university and K-12 levels
Religious thought and practice
Folklore/oral histories
Historiography
Language, translation, bilingualism and linguistics
Library and information science
Social implications, cultural analyses
Collections and archives: accessioning and critical archive studies
Documenting the long road/struggle toward equality
1960-1980 only movement(s)-related research

Deadline & how to apply

This coming fall we’ll begin searching for a tenure-track assistant professor in this field, but in the meantime, we hope to hire a visitor to teach classes that include Chicanx literature, film and literature, and, ideally, introductory classes in other American literatures. We will consider both candidates who have completed the PhD and those who are near completion (assuming that a year of full-time teaching would not interfere with their ability to complete their work).
