Los novíssimos - New literature from Latin America

Panel discussion about contemporary Latin-American voices

Post-post boom? The Latin-American literary boom dates 50 years back, but ist legacy lasts to the present day and still forces contemporary authors to fight back pigeonholing, indifference and exoticizing. Topics and genres, aesthetics and storytellers of the new literature from Latin America are as varied and complex as the continent is diverse in geography and cultures. Pop-culture blends into Nord American trash-aesthetics, classical female categories like motherhood and domesticity are radically deconstructed; and experieces with racism and violence find their way into literature.
