It is well known that the writers of the Latin American “Boom” Generation have influenced authors in emerging nations all over the world. Gabriel García Márquez, for example, played a significant role in shaping the works of Ismail Kadare (Albania), Salman Rushdie (India), and Chinua Achebe (Nigeria). All three of these authors have acknowledged García Márquez as a source of inspiration for their own writings; however, García Márquez’s other contemporaries including Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, Julio Cortázar and more also influenced countless writers abroad. The main focus of this session is to explore how García Márquez and the other writers of the Latin American “Boom” have made an impact on authors beyond Latin America’s borders.
Submission Deadline extended to October 1st, 2016.
Conference Dates: February 24th - 26th, 2017
Keynote Speaker: Gavin Jones
