about this item

This book engages and problematizes concepts such as “decolonial” and “coloniality” to question methodologies in literary and cultural scholarship. While the  eleven contributions produce diverse approaches to literary and cultural texts ranging from Pre-Columbian to contemporary works, thereis a collective questioning of the very idea of “Latin America,” what “Latin American” contains or leaves out, and the various practices and locations constituting Latinamericanism. This transdisciplinary study aims to the open an evolving corpus of decolonial scholarship and provides a unique geographic and temporal entry point into the possibilities and limits that literature and material culture produced from precolonial to contemporary times.
