American Studies Colloquium: The Book in Movement

Experimentation & Craft in Autonomous Publishing Networks in Latin America

Presented by Magalí Rabasa, Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies at Lewis & Clark College.

Over the past two decades, Latin America has seen an explosion of experiments with autonomy, as people across the continent express their refusal to be absorbed by the logic and order of neoliberalism. The autonomous movements of the twenty-first century are marked by an unprecedented degree of interconnection, through their use of digital tools and their insistence on the importance of producing knowledge about their practices through strategies of self-representation and grassroots theorization. Discussing her recent monograph The Book in Movement (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2019)Professor Rabasa travels through the political and literary underground of cities in Mexico, Bolivia, Argentina, and Chile to explore the ways that autonomous politics are enacted in the production and circulation of books.
