CALL FOR PAPERS FOR A VOLUME ON TEJANIDAD

We invite submissions of scholarly or creative work for possible inclusion in the anthology tentatively titled ¡Somos Tejanas! The Editors welcome critical essays, personal essays, poetry, and artwork on any aspect of Tejana experience.

Tejanas have been instrumental in the development of Chicanx Studies and have a long history of intellectual and political work as Tejanas in and out of Texas. We envision our project to contribute to Tejanx Studies in significant ways by laying out the complex historical and cultural milieu we have inherited. 

We ask key questions about our Tejanidad:What does it mean to identify as Tejana?What are the cultural and social identifiers?How do we differ from other Chicanas? Latinas?How has living in the state shaped our identity?

We seek to map out the current terrain of Tejanx Studies through a multiplicity of genres and experiences. This anthology aims to explore historical and current Tejana identity and experience from different perspectives, which may include but are not limited to the following:

• Immigration/Border crossing/Border living as a Tejana

• Identity poetics

• Tejanas and Civil Rights

• Reproductive rights

• Political Activism

• Cultural Expressions that signal Tejanidad

• Tejanidad expressed through religion, culture, race, class, gender, sexuality, music, dance, art, curanderismo, spirituality, etc.

• Tejanidad through historical, ethnographic, literary, sociological, psychological, or other scholarly approaches

• COVID-19 experiences (illness, death of loved one, work/education disruption, childcare, elderly care, self-care, anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, etc.)

• “The freeze” experiences (preservation, community, etc

Please send an electronic proposal, as a Word document, that includes a 250-word abstract, a 100-word bio citing your publications and area of interest by October 15, 2021 to ¡Somos Tejanas! co-editors:
