Brazilian authors have increasingly been dealing with the time period after democratization started in 1985. They have started to incorporate new social moods in diverse texts, adopt devices used in other forms of art, and reflect on their relationship with the mass media. At the conference literary scholars will select certain current social and political trends and examine their impact on contemporary literature in Brazil. The conception and particular themes to be discussed developed out of an intensive exchange between experts in contemporary Brazilian literature working at the three participating universities. The conference is being organized by the division dealing with the literatures and cultures of Latin America and the Brazil Research Center, both based at the Institute for Latin American Studies at Freie Universität.
