Session Description:

This roundtable discusses current Latin American poetry (including Chicana/o poetry) as that which writes or speaks from beyond the vulnerable—not from the imminent danger but from the wound—and proposes critical tools that privilege this enunciation and its consequences as a challenge to the descriptions that remain hegemonic in the field.
