      Collection in Memory of Rane Arroyo

      Submissions of any genre are invited for an edited collection in memory
      of poet and playwright Rane Arroyo (1954-2010). His 11 books of poetry,
      collection of short stories, and numerous plays and performances blazed
      new trails in Puerto Rican / American literature in their blending of
      so-called “high” and “low” cultures, their frank reflections on
      homosexuality, ethnicity, and social class, and their experimentation
      and self-reflexivity. Rane won numerous accolades during his lifetime
      and was respected and loved by many, particularly those students and
      authors whom he influenced and inspired.

      Rane was unafraid to push and blur boundaries, and this collection
      seeks
      to honor him and his courage by doing the same. To that end, I welcome
      any sort of contribution in any genre and from any perspective that you
      feel appropriate to the occasion and to the memory of Rane Arroyo. This
      may include, but is certainly not limited to, “traditional” (or
      not-so-traditional)
      literary criticism, poems or other creative works, personal essays,
      reflections on teaching Rane’s work, and more. Essays of literary
      criticism should be approximately 6,000-8,000 words in length,
      including
      end notes and a list of works cited that follows the norms of the
      Modern
      Language Association. Other submissions may be in any format. Please
      feel free to include images, especially if you own them and can grant
      copyright permission. Images of Rane are certainly welcomed, as are any
      other images that might be pertinent to your submission.

      Interest in submitting should be expressed via email to
      <bsandlin(at)sewanee.edu> (replace (at) with @ in sending e-mail)
      no later than March 31, 2011. Please indicate what you plan to submit
      and, if appropriate, a
      title and brief abstract. Final submissions will be due no later than
      May 31, 2011.
