    * CFP: XVI Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage Conference La
    Politiquera: Recovering Politics/Recovering Political Voices We are
    pleased to announce the XVI Recovering the US Hispanic Literary Heritage
    Conference will convene virtually April 7-9, 2022. The meeting theme, La
    Politiquera: Recovering Politics/Recovering Political Voices, seeks to
    highlight voices in the archives that chronicle the agency of individuals
    and communities in navigating complex political environments and events,
    especially in the context of barred access to democratic institutions such
    as the courts and voting. What counts as politics when communities are
    deemed unrecognizable as a legitimate, enfranchised citizenry? Apart from
    the politics that appear in contesting the settler policies of a white,
    nationalist, Anglophone hegemony, what are other debates, controversies and
    ideologies that inform recovered archives? How do scholars approach and
    assess archives when politics in the past often underwrote issues, social
    practices and belief systems our communities no longer uphold?
    Archivists, librarians, linguists, historians, critics, theorists and
    community members are invited to share examples of the legacy they are
    recovering, preserving and making available of Hispanic peoples—whether
    residents, immigrants or exiles—of the United States over the past
    centuries. We seek papers and posters in either English or Spanish that
    highlight these many contributions, but also offer critical ways to rethink
    issues of agency, gender, sexualities, race/ethnicity, environmental
    justice, class and power. Recently, the end date for Recovery research
    and topics was adjusted to 1980 in order to give scholars, archivists,
    linguists and librarians the stimulus needed to begin the recovery of
    the documentary legacy of the 1960s and 1970s. In light of the
    vulnerability of the civil rights archives from these decades, we encourage
    papers that make use of archival research that provoke a revision of
    established literary interpretations and/or historiographies. Papers or
    posters on locating, preserving and making accessible political documents
    generated by Latinas/os/x in those two decades, and from prior centuries,
    are welcome. We invite proposals on the following themes: ● Digital
    Humanities ● Analytical studies of recovered authors and/or texts ●
    Critical, historical and theoretical approaches to recovered texts ●
    Curriculum development: integrating recovered texts into teaching at
    university and K-12 levels ● Religious thought and practice ● Environmental
    justice as documented prior to 1980 ● Folklore/oral histories ●
    Historiography ● Language, translation, bilingualism and linguistics ●
    Library and information science ● Social implications and cultural analyses
    ● Collections and archives: accessioning and critical archive studies ●
    Documenting the long road/struggle toward equality ● 1960-1980 only
    movement(s)-related research We welcome general audiences, including
    graduate students. Undergraduate students are encouraged to submit
    proposals for poster presentations. A limited number of student bursaries
    may be available. Submit your name, affiliation and 250-word abstract for
    presentations/posters by email to
    <> by February 1, 2022. Manos a la obra:
