Evil in the Written Word: Violent Narrators in Contemporary Latin American Fiction 

The topic of violence has been of significant importance in Spanish American literature. Brutal dictatorships, revolutionary wars, drug-related violence, and guerrilla warfare have left a strong imprint on contemporary Spanish American literature. Despite this, there are few literary works presented through the point of view of the perpetrator of violence and told in his or her voice. Consequently, few studies investigate the construction of these voices and analyze the effect of this narrative design in the literature of violence.

Abstract

In today’s economy, the field of composition studies is rapidly changing; partly out of the realities of the academic job market and partly as a result of the desire for high-level writing skills at the undergraduate level. As Magrino and Sorrell (2104) state in their discussion of the influx of graduate assistant in the composition classroom, “due to the demand upon Composition programs to provide courses that prepare undergraduates for authentic modes of discourse that they will encounter in the workplace, the number of undergraduate courses in Composition has risen dramatically, with the field of Business Communication seeing an especially steep spike.”

Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable, but other approaches would also be considered.
