"Microzones": (Un)settling Culture in Caribbean and Latin American Texts

This panel will examine how literary and visual expressions challenge and denounce epistemic violence in the Caribbean and Latin America. The scholar Nelly Richard identifies “microzones of agitation and commotion that unsettle the normative equilibrium of what is dictated by habit or convenience, and thereby creates disturbance in the semiotic organization of messages that produce and reproduce institutional consent”(1). This panel evokes the dialogue and study of the microzones in Caribbean and Latin American literature and art.

Uncertainties, positionalities, and shifting interpretations often play an important part in our research, but standard graphical representations, which are frequently used in the Digital Humanities, seem to represent information objectively. Do charts, maps, graphs and other forms of representation hinder our discussions of experiential issues, or can we reinterpret this supposed objectivity to put tension on empiricism itself? Can we work to reimagine these traditional graphic representations through layer or distortion, or should we invent new forms for humanities work?

This panel seeks to theorize the female Asian American body as a biopolitical site for either a patriarchal or maternal dialogue and to investigate these representations and the textual body in order to consider the following:

Are these representations vehicles through/by which postcolonial and diasporic trauma is articulated?


Are maternal bodies deleted from family histories?

Does the body represent a sexualized and feminized nation?

What are the haunted histories and locations of the Asian American experience in the literary field and in the American field of cultural production?


How does the narrator serve as a cultural translator?

In 2012, Germany became the second largest immigration country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, after the United States. As numbers of migrants to the EU continue to climb, debates about Germany’s status as an Einwanderungsland have become increasingly charged. The complex effects of this most recent experience are far from unprecedented in Germany’s national history, however. Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, Germany witnessed dramatic shifts not only in its population and national borders, but also in its notions of belonging, citizenship and foreignness.
