Description: As the nexus of seemingly disparate groups, global Hispanophone studies explores the paradox of a separation that unifies, as reflected in texts that navigate separations between countries, languages, generations, borders, and colonial pasts, thus functioning as loci for transactions that offer the possibility of transformation. Participants analyze textual transactions that arise from separations due to violence, political, economic, or cultural factors.
