CFP: Fronteras, disidencias y márgenes por cartografiar, 1 abril de 2012

Monday, November 21, 2011 - 7:32pm
Centro de Estudios Latinoamericanos "Rómulo Gallegos" (Celarg), Caracas, República Bolivariana de Venezuela

Desbordar el territorio, bordear, explorar nuestro afuera. Apostar a apropiarse de las zonas y objetos que no tienen nombre. Infringir. Disentir para labrar nuevos caminos. Explorar territorios sin ley, donde aún todo está por inventarse, incluso a costa del peligro. Escindir la lengua, escindir la práctica, derivar, multiplicar. Un recorrido en la frontera es siempre inaprensible, desdibujado. Pero urge volver a circundar cada tanto nuestro margen, nuestro afuera, nuestro límite: hacernos ajenos para volver a vernos.
