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.                

Submit abstracts (300 words maximum) by September 30, 2017, to Session ID #16643
