The multimedia works of contemporary Spanish American women artists and writers

Jane Elizabeth Lavery, Sarah Bowskill (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


In contemporary Latin America, an emerging crosscurrent of pioneering female writers and artists with an interest in transgressing traditional boundaries of genre, media, gender and nation are using their work to voice dissent against pressing social issues including neo-liberal consumerism, environmental degradation, mass migration and gender violence.

Bringing together analyses by scholars from the US, Europe and Latin America with reflections by Ana Clavel, Eugenia Prado Bassi, Eli Neira, Regina José Galindo, Carla Faesler, Mónica Nepote, Pilar Acevedo, Gabriela Golder, Mariela Yeregui, Jacalyn Lopez Garcia and Lucia Grossberger Morales on their own practice, this volume proposes new critical approaches to new forms of expression which encapsulate rich transnational cultural flows and grass-roots political activism. Via an analysis of multimedia interventions and practice, the volume shows how the work of these women draws attention to the constructed nature of all boundaries and borders, be they between nations or people, in an increasingly globalised and digitalised world.
