    Session 163 Democracy and the Latinx Novel

    In-Person @ Marriott Marquis – Gallaudet

    Presider: Alberto Varón

    Recent events have demonstrated the simultaneous vulnerability and resiliency of democratic projects and of our need for cultural frameworks for imagining the norms and processes of those institutions. Panelists address the relation between democracy and the novel across historical, linguistic, and ethnic ranges and discuss the novel form’s ability to imagine a more just democratic society.

    Panelists: José de la Garza Valenzuela , G.R. Andrés Guzmán, Carmen Lamas, Carlos Alonso Nugent, Kristy L. Ulibarri
