Chicana/Latina Studies: The Journal of Mujeres Activas en Letras y Cambio Social calls for participation in the Writing Workshop at the 2011 MALCS Summer Institute at California State University, Los Angeles, August 3-7, 2011. DEADLINE: Postmark July 1, 2011
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 clear recommendations for meeting internal criteria of Chicana/Latina Studies, specific direction about revision, and first-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. Aug. 3, and the second on Friday Aug. 5) is required.
One Writing Workshop will be offered this summer:
1) The Academic Article: A Writing Workshop, facilitated by Dr. Karen Mary Davalos, former editor of Chicana/Latina Studies.
DATES and TIMES: Aug. 3 at 3:00-5:00 p.m. and Aug. 5 at 8:00-10:00 a.m. Participants may arrive on Tuesday, Aug 2, but must contact the Cal State LA Site Committee to arrange housing. The workshop will begin at 3:00 p.m. on Weds., Aug. 3 and continue on Friday Aug. 5 at 8:00 a.m. of the MALCS Summer Institute. This schedule means that participants miss only one hour of the MALCS Summer Institute programs.
