“Mexican Literature, Culture, and Film across Borders: Translation, Migration and Frontiers,” a two-day conference organized by the Center of Latin American Studies at Boston University. The central aim of the conference is to bring prominent scholars who will explore cultural and sociopolitical phenomena related to Mexico, often neglected by national histories, and to engage with theories on translation and migration in the field of literary and film studies.

24 scholars from across North America and Mexico have committed to present their work at the conference. Among them is Zapotec poet Natalia Toledo, the keynote speaker. Natalia will read her poetry in Zapotec, Spanish, and English. We also count among our participants the award-winning Mexican-American filmmaker Rodrigo Reyes, who will be screening his recent film Lupe under the Sun.
