At its 47th Annual Conference (May 18-21, 2022, Online), the African Literature Association (ALA) proposes to explore the complex ways in which adversity impacts creative expression in a diversity of contexts.

The Luso/Hispanophone Caucus of the ALA (LHCALA) therefore invites proposals that reflect on how Lusophone and Hispanophone writers, film makers and activists from Africa and its diaspora engage with global or local adverse events in various literary genres and other media. A comprehensive list of the contexts of adversity, and a number of subthemes,  provided by the ALA can be found at https://conference.africanlit.org/2022-theme.

Proposals are to be sent to alvited@denison.edu (cc dodartey@uoguelph.ca) by December 15, 2021, and should include the following:

• Name,

• Institutional Affiliation,

• Email address,

• Short bio,

• An abstract of up to 250 words,

• Request for A/V equipment if needed
