We are accepting abstracts for a roundtable at NEMLA 2020 to be held in Boston, MA, March 5-8. Abstracts are due Sept. 30, 2019.
The topic of the roundtable is "Gender, Memory, and Post-dictatorship in Latin American and Spanish Cinema." We look to examine the ways gender is affected by, responds to, and intervenes in conversations about memory as Spanish and Latin American societies grapple with the aftermath and effects of dictatorship and authoritarian rule from the 20th century. We seek to place in dialogue a variety of filmic representations from both sides of the Atlantic to further explore how these texts theorize gender in the context of post-dictatorial memory. We welcome presentations that engage with new theoretical approaches to film, gender, and/or memory. Abstracts may be written in English, Spanish, or Portuguese and should be submitted through the NEMLA website.
