Publishing Latin American and Caribbean Literature Today / Publicar Literatura Latinoamericana y Caribeńa Hoy

This one-day hybrid workshop aims to bring together a diverse group of personalities representing the international editorial market to explore the trends, challenges, and opportunities that define the production and dissemination of contemporary Latin American and Caribbean literature. The workshop will provide a platform for independent and mainstream publishers, literary agents, translators, booksellers, and writers to engage in conversation and share their insights about various facets of the book publishing industry with Brown professors and students. Participants will uncover the inner workings of the editorial process, including decision-making, roles, and strategies that ultimately shape the face and pace of Latin American and Caribbean literature and its readership.

The workshop will feature a combination of in-person events broadcast online and fully-online panels moderated by scholars and experts specializing in the materialities of Latin American literature in the 21st century. The hybrid format will enable a broader national and international audience to participate virtually in the panels and Q&A sessions. For select panels, simultaneous translation from Spanish to English will be provided to foster inclusivity and accessibility.

This event is co-sponsored by CLACS, Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, Departments of Hispanic Studies, Comparative Literature, American Studies, Modern Media and Culture, Observatorio del Instituto Cervantes en Harvard, the Consulate General of Mexico in Boston, the Dean of the College, the Graduate Certificate Program in Translation Studies, and the Center for Language Studies.
