September 11th, 6pm 

Isabella Portilla (Colombia)
Diego Olavarría (Mexico)
Leonardo Teja (Mexico)

Talk in Spanish with subtitles in Finnish

Moderated by Sofia Sandqvist

In this conversation, writers will address territorial and globalized aesthetics in the context of Spanish and Portuguese fiction and journalism. What stories, characters or subjects are recurrent in contemporary literature? Where are the new spaces of transgression? How does the era of post-truth affect the relation between fiction and journalism? What parricides and what resurrections are happening before our eyes in the landscape of contemporary literature? What are the best kept secrets of literature in Spanish and Portuguese?
