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.

Space and Psyche in Contemporary Latinx/Latin American Culture (NeMLA Pittsburgh 2018)

updated: 
Sunday, July 23, 2017 - 2:00pm
Thomas Conners, University of Pennsylvania
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the relationship between space and psyche in contemporary Latinx and Latin American texts. With movement across the Americas in constant flux, Latin American and Latinx literatures offer insights into this border-crossing psyche, with recent novels depicting the diverse reactions subjects exhibit in forming, surviving, and thriving. For example, the heroine of Yuri Herrera’s Señales que precederán al fin del mundo (2011) comes to terms with her subjectivity in her journey north, while the journalist of Horacio Castellanos Moya’s Insensatez (2004) finds his conception of self shaken after his move.

This panel will explore the concepts and stereotypes that lay behind the vision of love expressed by Latin American authors. Its purpose is to create a dialogue about writers’ depictions of love and womanhood and how those ideas reflect, renew, or challenge Latin American societies. Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable, but other approaches would also be considered.
