Lucero Journal - a journal of iberian and latin american studies | University of California

Lucero 23 Special Issue:The Short Form

From Karl Marx’s “Communist Manifesto” to Walter Benjamin’s “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction” to Max Weber’s Essays in Sociology, some of the world’s most groundbreaking intellectual, political, and philosophical works have circulated as short interventions. The power and resonance of concise prose endow the short essay with limitless discursive potential. 

The forthcoming 23rd issue of Lucero, the journal published by the graduate students of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at UC Berkeley, seeks to explore the possibilities of the short essay across all realms of literary and cultural studies in the Hispanic and Lusophone world. We invite (short) submissions that harness the power of the short form to suggest diverse critical, political, and philological analyses of the Lusophone and Hispanic worlds. Lucero challenges authors to take radical stances and endow their work with political resonance, regardless of the object of study’s philological, cultural, or ideological origins.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

- Meditations on form
- Short form essays
- The serial novel and novellas
- Crónicas
- Manifestoes and Calls to Arms
- Manifestoes of emergent fields of study
- Popular literature
- Popular culture
- Short stories
- The University and the future of higher education
- Concise literary and cultural analysis (focused on cultural production from the Medieval and Early Modern periods through the present are welcome)
