Latino fatherhood and paternal figures are ever present in literature, film, and television, yet there is a lack of scholarly attention on their representation. Research has largely focused on Latina/Chicana motherhood and maternal figures. The purpose of this edited collection, titled "Latino Fatherhood: Papá in Popular Narrative," is to address this major gap in Latinx cultural studies by investigating how Latino fatherhood is defined, represented, and challenged in literature, film, and television. Proposals dedicated to Latinx cultural productions as well as Hollywood and media treatments of Latino fatherhood are both welcomed. The deadline for proposals is June 1st, 2018, with completed manuscripts due October 1st, 2018. Final revisions will be due January 15th, 2019. The final word count for completed chapters is 5,000-6,000 words. A scholarly press has expressed interest in this project.


Please submit proposals of no more than 300 words to Please include a recent cv with your submission.
