Contraband in the Americas

"The end of contraband ... is the end of Argentine history."
        - Ricardo Piglia

What is the role of the black market, broadly defined, in literature from the
United States and Latin America? How is the notion of a contraband economy
important for rethinking political narrative? What is the function of an other
market? How can smuggling be theorized not only as a motif in literary texts,
but also as a figure for the act of writing in the Americas? Please send
1-page abstracts to David Kelman,, by 17 March 2006.
