A great deal of attention worldwide is currently being paid to economic and political exchange processes between the southern regions of the world. This conference will focus on the lesser known cultural and literary ties between the regions. Scholars from Latin America, India, the United States, Spain, and Germany will give presentations providing insight into the complex interdependencies of the two major regions. They will examine reception processes, meetings of intellectuals of both regions, and literary emancipation strategies, thus spanning a bridge between two diverse cultural regions. The conference is being supported by VolkswagenStiftung.
