This roundtable will engage new openings and possible futures of Latin American literary and cultural studies. It will assess seemingly exhausted paradigms in Latin American studies (like cultural studies, transculturation, the literary), while proposing new trends and ideas (like affect, disability studies, posthegemony, negative dialectics, and a new theory of class) to think new lines of inquiry in the field.
