Professional Opportunities


Colleagues: This is a call for your scholarly publications. I am writing a review article to survey peer-reviewed scholarship that appeared from 2005-present on Latin American feminist literary criticism and gender studies approaches to Latin American literary criticism. Recent articles or those that appeared in regional journals may not show up in JSTOR and MUSE, so the purpose of this call is to capture all relevant sources. I would be grateful to receive a PDF of peer-reviewed work at my OU address, which is lagrecaATouDOTedu. Even if the work is archived and you want to ensure it is considered, feel free to send it along. Subject line "REVIEW ARTICLE" will be helpful. I WELCOME FORWARDING THIS CALL TO LISTSERVES AND/OR OTHER COLLEAGUES. Many, many thanks for your kind consideration and I hope you are having a productive and relaxing summer! -Nancy LaGreca
