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.

Early in his coverage of the 1972 American presidential campaign, Hunter S. Thompson notified his readers that he was abandoning all pretense of journalistic objectivity. “Don’t bother to look for it here,” he cautions. “With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.” With this warning, Thompson was not divorcing himself from truth-telling; rather, as William Stephenson explains, in refusing to play by the correct rules of conventional journalism, Thompson “turned away from the ‘truth’ determined by metropolitan editors and their establishment paymasters, and lit out for his own frontier.”
