CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS
Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social calls for participation in the Writing Workshop at the 2012 MALCS Summer Institute at University of California, Santa Barbara, July 18-21, 2012.
DEADLINE: Postmark June 13, 2012
WHAT: Feminist collaboration for publication!
The Writing Workshop is one of the Journal’s formal methods of creating a feminist editorial process. Following the spirit and mission of MALCS, the journal’s editors offer the workshop in order to energize through collaboration, programmatically link scholarship and leadership, and institutionalize mentorship. Participants bring their work-in-progress and depart with clearrecommendations for meeting internal criteria of Chicana/Latina Studies, specific direction about revision, andfirst-hand knowledge about our feminist editorial production process.
To create an intellectual community, prior to the workshop, participants read and commented on the material of the other writers. Attending both two-hour sessions (the first on Weds. July 18, and the second on Friday July 20) is required.
One Writing Workshop will be offered this summer:
