This panel explores the concepts and stereotypes that lay behind the vision of love and affections expressed by Latin American authors. Its focus is writers’ depictions of love, affections, 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, 2018, to Session ID # 17255
