Colloquium on Mexican Literature - Event

This year’s colloquium will place Santa Barbara in the center: its history (as an original town and a colonial city of Spanish migration in past centuries, as well as Mexican and Central American migration in more recent times); its current situation; the richness of its archives; the attractiveness of its streets. With that in mind, we will explore how women intervene in urban space and temporality, and the ways they construct memory and experience.

For our congress, the two themes are integrated into one: woman and the city in history, culture, literature, and in other arts and disciplines, suggesting innumerable ways of understanding. Therefore, the presentations and conferences will also address topics on women founders and foundations, women in transition and on the borders, indigenous peoples and gentrification, (un)safe spaces and times for women.

Ours is an interdisciplinary and inclusive colloquium of an academic and educational nature. It is an event that is not for profit, and will be free and open to the public in general, and to the scholarly community and friends of our university. This many years of continuity are proof of an activity that directly connects with the culture and the modern history of Santa Barbara, home to our institution.
