Its purpose is to create a dialogue about writers' depictions of love, and how those ideas reflect, renew or challenge Latin American societies and identities. Comparative and feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable, but other approaches would be considered. Send abstracts to Dr. María Cristina Campos Fuentes, DeSales University, at
