First Symposium on Judeo Latin American Literature and Culture

The University of Nebraska, Lincoln

Harris Center for Judaic Studies

Department of Modern Languages and Literatures announce First Call for Papers

April 19-20, 2009

“Returning to Babel: Jewish Latin American Experiences and Representations”

The Harris Center for Judaic studies and the Department of Modern Languages at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln invite researchers from different academic disciplines to participate in the First Symposium on Judeo Latin American Literature and Culture to be held in Lincoln, Nebraska on April 19-20 of 2009.

In the era of multidirectional universalism, hybridism and transnational linguistic and socio-cultural migrations, the question of Jewish presence in the history, cultures and societies of Latin America, with and without a hyphenated identity, and the concern with the exclusiveness and marginality of the Jewish communities of Latin America, should be reevaluated. Are notions such as otherness and exclusion still relevant with regard to discussing Latin-American Jews and/or Jewish Latin-Americans? Are there new representations of “Jewishness” within the Latin American context? And how do they pertain to other realities outside the Latin American and/or Jewish hemispheres? Which representations have acquired or require themes such as the Holocaust, identity and collective memory? This symposium proposes to reexamine some of the prevalent paradigms in the area of Latin American Jewish studies from an interdisciplinary standpoint, comprising literature, culture, history, cinematography and visual arts. We seek to explore the wider range of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives concerning Latin American Jewish experiences in its various fields, thereby offfering a framework to discuss new and old trends, and to elaborate on these concerns.

We invite colleagues and independent researchers to send us a title and 150-word abstract in English or Spanish, by November 30, to the following email address:

Proposals should include the following information: name, academic affiliation, and contact details of participant. The final program will be published by February 2009.

We look forward to your valuable contribution and hope to see you in Lincoln in April. With best wishes for the new Jewish year,

Shana tova,
