Call for chapters: A Love Letter to This Bridge Called My Back
In 1979, Gloria Anzaldúa and Cherie Moraga shared a vision for "revolutionary solidarity" for and among women of color. Their assessment of the conditions of their lived experiences and the experiences of other women of color, as well as their youthful optimism, propelled them forward to begin what would be considered a radical project to advance what they referred to as "Third World Feminism." Out of this vision and shared desire to coalesce, center, and catalyze solidarities of sisterhood grounded in the intersectional identities and perspectives of women of color, Anzaldúa and Moraga conceived a literary gem,This Bridge Called My Back (Anzaldúa & Moraga, 1981)The writings of the original Bridge authors range from full-throated and unflinching to lyrical and heartfelt testimonies of the lived experiences of Third World women of color at a particular time and place.
Bringing together arts- and text-based declarations or "aesthetic pronouncements" from individuals who have been moved by the foundational work of the Third World women of color (WoC) writers of This Bridge Called My Back, we will honor the 40th anniversary of Gloria Anzaldúa and Cherie Moraga’s book by publishing A Love Letter to This Bridge Called My Back in 2021. For this collection, we are interested in short essays, poems, visual artworks, first person letters, narratives, etc. by women and femmes of color living at the margins and intersections of (difference) race, gender, sexuality, class, religion, ethnicity, language, and ability. Further, to honor the legacy of the original Bridge writers, we are seeking non-academic and academic authors who challenge and expand the existing boundaries of traditional academic discourse and who embrace writing that is accessible to the broadest possible audience.
Contributions to this volume represent an ongoing commitment to the foundational work laid by Anzaldúa and Moraga by illuminating, questioning, and responding to past, present, and future 1) political currents, 2) progressive struggles, 3) healings, transformations, and acts of resistance, and 4) solidarity toward gender and sexual justice. Although brief, these Love Letter aesthetic pronouncements advance the ongoing and ever-shifting conversations brought about by and with a new generation of WoC working toward what it means to be Third World Feminist-conscious.
Chapter Guidelines
The chapters in this volume will comprise writings (short essays, poems, first person letters, narratives) of no more than 1,500 words and visual artwork (digital images), which may include 2-D and 3-D works.
The writings and/or artwork should center the lived and embodied experiences of Women of Color (WoC) and may be inspired by or respond to
  • historical and contemporary “truths” of WoC
  • WoC embodied knowledges or “theories in the flesh” (Anzaldúa & Moraga, 1981)
  • moments of resisting, transforming, and creating discourse through WoC gender - and race-conscious work
  • ongoing dehumanizing political climates that maintain racialized/gendered oppressive systems of power
  • WoC realities of continued lack of inclusion within current transnational feminist movements
  • class divisions, inequality, homophobia, populism, nativism, imperialism
  • narratives that share the varying social, cultural, and spiritual languages
  • womanist, postcolonial, critical race, indigenous, third space, queer, and trans-, futurist, and spiritual-body perspectives
  • other themes related to Third World WoC feminist experiences, visions, practices.
While submissions should be informed by a range of these themes, proposals should be written in an accessible manner, as this text is aimed at a broad readership that ranges from academics to community activists, artists to engineers, mail carriers to stay at home mothers and any and everyone in-between. The goal is to develop a “text” that people from varied backgrounds may find connections to and peace in.
