For the last twenty years, Iberian and Latin American Transatlantic Studies have challenged traditional academic notions of areas of study by examining the legacies of imperialism (colonialism and neocolonialism) on social constructs, knowledge, identity, disciplines, language, and societies from the 19th-21st centuries. As an interdisciplinary methodology, it has also provided theories as a guide for transdisciplinary research not only to visibilize subaltern subjects, relations, practices, and marginalized narratives but also to foster cross-cultural dialogues. This panel seeks to examine literature and cultural products that destabilize and/or reinforce hegemonic discourses shaped by imperialism and its universalizing, essentializing, and binary dynamics. We welcome papers that analyze (post)(de)colonial and/or neocolonial connections, mobilities, memories, displacements, transcultural-transnational identities, resistances, etc. across the Atlantic. The deadline for abstract submission is September 30, 2021.
