7:00 PM–8:15 PM Thursday, Jan 3, 2019 (US - Central)

Sheraton Grand - Arkansas

Session Information

Description: Since the irruption of postcolonial studies in our professional field, the proliferation of new objects and nonconventional methodologies permitted an increment of discussions but also a decentering effect that makes it difficult to have a panoramic view of the profession’s research interests. Panelists attempt, under the general topic new materialism, to come to terms with this situation, emphasizing what seems to be a common trend.
