"Culture, Identity, and Media: New Perspectives of Representation"

(May 2016: Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main)

In an article on social representation, Birgitta Höijer writes: “Social representations are about processes of collective meaning-making resulting in common cognitions…it specifies a number of communicative mechanisms explaining how ideas are communicated and transformed into what is perceived of as common sense. This touches the very heart of mediated communication – how the media naturalizes social thinking and generates collective cognition.” (1) Media – whether a novel, a television show, or a film – is often responsible for shaping the way people think about other cultures and societies. Naturally, the media also helps create or support stereotypes. But how does this process work?

Fictions of Circulation & the Circulation of Fictions in Latin America - NeMLA Convention March 17-20, 2016

full name / name of organization: 
Lorena Cuya Gavilano / Lycoming College
contact email: 
lorenacuya@gmail.com

People, narratives, and genres move across geographic, linguistic, temporal, and cultural boundaries. Their multiple modes of circulation generate conceptual and rhetorical strategies to preserve, adapt, transform, and/or conceal identity vis-à-vis issues of spatial and temporal mobility. In the last hundred years, the circulation of people, texts, and other cultural productions among Latin American countries has proved to be increasingly rich and complex in positive and negative ways. This roundtable* focuses on works that deal with the circulation of people and narratives across Latin American borders. It focuses on texts that are, in essence, privileged manifestations of transnational, post-national, and/or World Literature phenomena and explores: How do they fictionalize the concept of circulation or mobility, and what are the fictions of circulation?
