Call for Book Chapters: “Trans-culturation and trans-identities in contemporary Mexican literature.”

Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on “Trans-culturation and trans-identities in contemporary Mexican literature.”

México is a country with a history and culture that has been transculturated since Prehispanic times. With the mix that arose with the conquerors’ arrival, other types of identities and transculturation came alive in the literature. Since the colonial age, literature recounts the transition lived in Mexico. This phenomenon is observable now in the analysis of the heterogeneous literature from Mexico, not only in the canon but in peripheral literature, and mainly in the ones from the “Deep Mexico” since the middle of the 20th century.   

We invite chapter proposals that rethink the identities and transculturation in Mexican contemporary literatures, from the 20th and 21st centuries. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Literature from native towns
  • Transculturation in contemporary literature
  • Identities or trans-identities in contemporary literature
  • Transnational spaces and identities


Please submit a 300-word abstract and CV to Herlinda Flores at by June 30, 2020. The final essay should be in Spanish.

This proposal is due on July 31st 2020.
