Topic:  Cartografías:  ¿Dónde estamos? / Cartographies: Where are we?

Concept Note:  

Cartography is the art of drawing maps, which in turn indicates the direction to follow or knowledge of where we stand. The purpose of this issue is to remap the planet on the basis of reflections, narrations and analyses of the menacing catastrophe — the one that ecology experts seem to constantly predict — that awaits humanity from the accelerated and unstoppable climate change. 

Agradecidas señas: A Journal of Literature, Culture  & Critical Essays is a bilingual (Spanish/English), peer-reviewed, academic journal based at  the University of Texas—Permian Basin. Following the achievement of our inaugural issue, we welcome submissions for our first annual issue, to be published in summer 2020. We invite contributions that draw on (but are not limited to) ecocriticism, cultural studies, philosophy and literature, political theory, and cinema.  We are particularly interested in submissions that are interdisciplinary in nature, and which bring language research into dialogue with historical, philosophical, economic, and political questions.

Agradecidas señas also welcomes translations from Spanish languages into English (or vice versa), particularly texts that have not been previously published. And this journal will also open a section for graduate students to publish their essays — upon recommendation by their professors.

Contributions should be accompanied by a 200-word abstract and a brief biography.

Submissions should be written in Spanish, English or in Portuguese, be between 5,000 and 8,000 words in length, and follow MLA style or other citation style books, such as APA and Chicago.  To view our full author guidelines and editorial policy, please visit our website:
