La toma de la palabra: Actores, acciones y agendas literarias y teatrales en América Latina

updated: 
Wednesday, August 29, 2012 - 4:04pm
Congreso de literatura mexicana

La toma de la palabra: Actores, acciones y agendas literarias y teatrales en América Latina.

Es necesario pensar el hecho literario más allá de su propia existencia como texto e incorporar al quehacer crítico el examen de su circulación: desde su producción editorial, su circulación comercial, su lectura, crítica, adopción académica, o, bien sus puestas en escena, adaptaciones. Por decirlo de otro modo, es necesario prestar atención a las figuras que adquiere la fidelidad a un acontecimiento literario.

Este congreso plantea un diálogo vivo entre críticos, editores, autores y animadores culturales, en que se combinen las ponencias académicas de corte tradicional con mesas redondas donde lo que predomine sea el diálogo abierto.

MLA Workshop: Get Started in Digital Humanities with Help from DHCommons
Thursday, 3 January 2013, 8:30am-12:30pm

At the 2012 MLA, conference attendees packed many sessions on the digital humanities (DH), reflecting the growing interest in this domain. Yet many newcomers to digital humanities lack opportunities to connect with the DH community, get help from experienced practitioners with conceptualizing and launching a project, or begin building the skills they need to realize their projects. This four-hour preconvention workshop welcomes language and literature scholars who wish to learn about, start, or join digital scholarly projects for research and/or teaching.
