In this special issue of Prose Studies, edited by Frederick Aldama, Katlin Sweeney, Carlos Kelly, and Danielle Orozco, we are interested in analyses of non-fiction texts (testimonio, autoethnography, essays, diaries, letters, autobiography, biography, news media, and social media activism) that focus on what it means to be Latinx in the US yesterday, today, and tomorrow. We are particularly interested in essays that consider the material and ideological moves to dehumanize Latinxs. We are also interested in essays that explore the ways that nonfiction texts may give voice to the voiceless and create spaces of solidarity and resistance.

We will invite articles related, but not limited to, the following questions:

  • How can non-fiction genres serve as shaping devices for conveying local and global Latinx experiences?
  • Or – how can non-fiction texts create new conceptions of Latinx subjectivities and experiences, both locally and globally?
  • How has non-fiction provided as a mode of creative resistance for Latinxs in the past and present, and what are implications for a future?
  • How does non-fiction provide as a creative medium for local and global modes of resistance?
  • In what ways do sexuality, disability, ethnicity, race, and class in the 21st century shape conceptions of Latinxs as persons?
  • How do new technologies and social media forms of activism shape Latinx experiences and subjectivities?
