In order to promote dialogue between “East” and “West”, and to also unpack and problematize those categories, we welcome papers that address a broad range of issues, especially in relation to literature, art, film, and popular culture. Interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches are encouraged and especially approaches that focus on contentious political and moral issues.

‘You take delight not in a city’s seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours… Or the question it asks you, forcing you to answer, like Thebes through the mouth of the Sphinx’
Italo Calvino - Le città invisibili
As globalization settles in across the planet, the female body continues to be the territory par excellence where political and religious wars resiliently take place. From the Balkan war, to the femicides of Ciudad Juárez and the women facially disfigured by acid throwing, the female body continues to be a threat in the public sphere. This panel explores scholarly ideas on feminist conceptualizations of the female body in the public realm in Spanish-speaking societies vis-à-vis the above-mentioned context.
