Call For Papers: Heteropatriarchal Institutional Violence and the Future of Chican@ Studies
The MALCS Subcommittee on Institutional Violence has been organizing to address the many ways institutional violence against Chicanas and queer and trans Chican@s persists in colleges and universities throughout the United States, including in Chicano Studies.
Institutional violence is revealed in the ways social hierarchies of power are effected in the daily practices in all of our institutions. Institutional Violence is structured into normalized processes and procedures that produce relations of domination, even as it exists in its most visible form of physical and sexual violence.
We are soliciting creative works, scholarly and/or personal essays and art for a Proposed Focused Issue of the Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social. The Issue seeks to document experiences and analysis of institutional violence in order to inspire the crucial social change needed for the transformation of our academic learning environments toward safer and more just places to live, work, learn and organize as Chicanas and queer/Trans Chican@s.
Send us a cover page, brief bio, working title and one-page abstract summary and/or poetry.
Deadline is June 15th. If accepted, completed article will be due at summer’s end. Being invited to contribute does not guarantee publication. All submissions will go through the standard peer-review editorial process.
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us.
