This panel will explore the concepts and stereotypes that lay behind the vision of love and eroticism expressed by Latin American authors. Its purpose is to create a dialogue about 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.
