FemUn NeMLA 2018: Global Spaces, Local Landscapes and Imagined Worlds

Pittsburgh, PA., April 12-15
Chair: Hilda Chacón (Nazareth College)

Notions of "space," "landscape," and "world" evolve and transform depending on the time period and cultural context. This panel seeks to address how Latin American and/or Spanish drama, literature and film, of any time period, explore ideas of  "space," "landscape," and "world" while challenging political, social and ideological contexts. We are particularly interested in how the application of gender and sexuality studies comes to bear on these (con)texts. For more information visit: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/cfp
