No Anxiety: Recent Latin American Narrative and the Canon.

Recent and new Latin American writers seem to have cast aside the influence of the Latin American “Boom.” They have ventured into the creation of vigorously new narratives, focusing on urban and global issues, moving away from the Boom's epic narratives infused with cultural nationalism. The links with the previous generation are there, but without any type of anxiety of influence (one thinks of Rodrigo Fresán's story in Granta of how he once knocked down Borges while running after his girlfriend through the streets of Buenos Aires).

Proposals are being sought for an edited collection of essays on recent Latin American writers. We are looking for papers that examine any aspect of narratives published during the last decade of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st century. The main focus of the collection is the relationship between these new authors and the Latin American literary canon. Articles may focus on a single author or on a group of writers (e.g. McOndo, Generación Crack). Papers can be written in English or Spanish. Some of the writers we are interested in are:
Yolanda Arroyo Pizarro
Roberto Bolaño
Federico Falco
Rodrigo Fresán
Alberto Fuguet
Andrés Neuman
Pola Oloixarac
Antonio Ortuño
Ena Lucía Portela
Lucía Puenzo
Edmundo Paz Soldán
Cristina Rivera Garza
Santiago Roncagliolo
Mayra Santos Febres
Samantha Schweblin
Carlos Yushimito
Jorge Volpi

If interested, please submit proposals in Spanish or English (300-500 words) and (one-page) CVs to Tim Robbins (trobbins01@drury.edu) or Eduardo Gonzalez (jgonzalez2@unl.edu) by June 1st, 2012. If your proposal is accepted the final essay of 6,000 – 11,000 words will be due by October 15th, 2012.
