28 Hispanists on the City in Literature (Conference Proceedings from 1983 Unearthed)

Cleaning my office I once again ran across the published proceedings from a 1983 conference: Hispanic Literatures, 9th Annual Conference, October 21-22 1983, “Los escritores y la experiencia de la ciudad moderna [Writers and the Modern City Experience]”. Potentially really fascinating stuff, and all written a bit before the urban bug really caught fire in Hispanic Studies (almost 30 years ago…).

The titles are really interesting–I know that a few were likely published or rewritten for publication later, but I suspect that most all of them–as so often happens with conference proceedings–were great insights that never found a home. I’ll be that this is one of the few copies of this proceedings out there, although correct me if I’m wrong. There are contributions by Teresa Vilarós, Farris Anderson, Alberto Moreiras, Howard M. Fraser, Genaro Pérez, Barbara Mujica, Robert Sims and many, many more…

Here’s the table of contents…

28 Articles by Hispanists on the City in Literature

This is the kind of thing that needs to be put out there as a book given the increasing interest in the topic, but I’m sure permissions would be a pain (perhaps impossible to get…). I should mention that the collection was edited by J. Cruz Mendizábal.

If you’re a Hispanist, take a look!
