Colonial Latin America Forum/ Proposed panels for MLA 2017—Philadelphia, Jan 5-8. Colonial ethnographies
This panel seeks papers on colonial ethnographic discourse in the context of Spanish imperialism. Numerous colonial texts engage in the description and interpretation of indigenous cultures, dealing with the complexities of transferring information from one cultural context to another. How do we read colonial texts that address issues of cultural difference and cultural translation? What are the stakes involved in cultural representation within colonial texts? One-page CV and 200-word abstract to Cristián Roa (email@example.com) by March 15th.
The Portuguese preceded the Spanish in their imperial undertakings and in more than one area informed Spanish colonialism. Nevertheless very few people study the Portuguese as antecedents of the Spanish or both colonial experiences, their similarities and differences, in tandem. Proposed by the Forum in Latin American Colonial Studies and the Forum in Luso-Brazilian Studies, this panel seeks contributions that address this gap. Send abstract, and CV to Pedro Meira Monteiro (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 15th.
