This panel reflects on the relationship between space and psyche in contemporary Latinx and Latin American texts. With movement across the Americas in constant flux, Latin American and Latinx literatures offer insights into this border-crossing psyche, with recent novels depicting the diverse reactions subjects exhibit in forming, surviving, and thriving. For example, the heroine of Yuri Herrera’s Señales que precederán al fin del mundo (2011) comes to terms with her subjectivity in her journey north, while the journalist of Horacio Castellanos Moya’s Insensatez (2004) finds his conception of self shaken after his move.

What does it mean to travel through time?
What is the impact on the individual and how widely do the repercussions of individual actions in the past ripple into an ever uncertain future?
What is the importance of a single moment or a single person’s actions when we consider them as a momentary player in history?

These are but some of the questions asked by the syfy series 12 Monkeys.

Call for Papers Platform: Journal of Theatre and Performing Arts 11.2 Theatre and the Kitchen Food and gastronomy saturate contemporary cultural spheres. From social media’s ‘food porn’, reality television and culinary pop-ups to concept-restaurants and the internationalisation of local cuisines. Arguably, menus have recently become a privileged medium for cultural transfer and appropriation, but food has long been both the signifier and transmitter of emotion, identity, ideology, belonging and wealth.
The latest research indicates that more than 400 million people embark annually on traditional pilgrimages in Saudi Arabia, India, Japan, and elsewhere, with the numbers steadily increasing. Pilgrimage is one of the most ancient practices of humankind and is associated with a great variety of religious and spiritual traditions, beliefs and sacred geographies. As a global phenomenon, pilgrimage facilitates interaction between and among diverse peoples from countless cultures, occupations, and walks of life. In the 5th Global Conference, we will continue to explore the many personal, interpersonal, intercultural, and international dimensions of these often profound events.
