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, disaffection, 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.
Submit abstracts (300 words maximum) by September 30, 2016, to Session ID # 16190

In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries “science” meant certain and systematic knowledge, so that what we now think of as humanities (for example, aesthetics or philosophy) could be sciences, while sciences such as chemistry (according to Kant) might still be arts.

Participatory Digital Cultures and Contemporary Discourses of (De)Legitimization
In the framework of their worldview the members of a language community come to an understanding on central themes of their personal and social lives. (Habermas, 1984: 59)
From David Simon’s Homicide, The Corner, and The Wire to the novels of George Pelecanos, Ta-Nehisi Coates’s books and blog, and Jelani Cobb’s journalistic histories of the city, Baltimore has become a focus of cultural and scholarly engagements with issues of race, class, community, justice, and identity in contemporary America. In this roundtable, we’ll consider these and other voices and texts, using their works and Baltimore itself to help us discuss and analyze the place and role of artistic, journalistic, and public scholarly engagements with 21st-century America.
This is a call for presentations for a proposed seminar to be held as part of the American Comparative Literature Association's Annual Meeting that will take place at Utrecht University in Utrecht, the Netherlands July 6-9, 2017.
