People, narratives, and genres move across geographic, linguistic, temporal, and cultural boundaries. Their multiple modes of circulation generate conceptual and rhetorical strategies to preserve, adapt, transform, and/or conceal identity vis-à-vis issues of spatial and temporal mobility. In the last hundred years, the circulation of people, texts, and other cultural productions among Latin American countries has proved to be increasingly rich and complex in positive and negative ways. This roundtable* focuses on works that deal with the circulation of people and narratives across Latin American borders. It focuses on texts that are, in essence, privileged manifestations of transnational, post-national, and/or World Literature phenomena and explores: How do they fictionalize the concept of circulation or mobility, and what are the fictions of circulation?
