Latin America is, according to the Washington Post, the most violent region in the world. It is no wonder then that a great deal of its cultural production depicts this everyday reality. This session welcomes papers in English or Spanish dealing with the representation of violence in recent Latin American audiovisual media (films, telenovelas, videoclips) and pondering how they reflect or reproduce, criticize or reinforce, the actual violence pervasive throughout the region.

Please submit a 300-word abstract and brief biographical statement by September 30, 2019 directly through NeMLA's system:

The 51st Annual NeMLA Convention will take place in Boston, MA on March 5-8, 2020.
