Reflections in the Margins: Representations of the Marginalized in Iberian and Latin American Literatures

Spanish Graduate Students Committee

2009 marks, in addition to an historic moment in US politics, the anniversary of many watershed moments in the history of Hispanic Literatures. On the Peninsula, this year marks the 400th anniversary of the expulsion of the moriscos from Spain, ending the era of the so-called convivencia of three cultures in Iberia. In Latin America, we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the 1609 publication of the Comentarios Reales by the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, offering a new perspective in the telling of indigenous history in the New World. . In more recent history, we commemorate seventy years since the end of the Spanish Civil War and the ushering in of a dictatorship, which would attempt to silence dissident voices in three ensuing decades.
