The CFP (Crossing the Borders of Creation and Critique Conference) will take place on Friday, March 1, 2019 at Washington University in St. Louis.
This year we have two key-note speakers, Cristina Rivera Garza (University of California, San Diego) and Suzanne Jill Levine (University of California, Santa Barbara).
Cristina Rivera Garza is the author of numerous books of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. She is the only writer who has won the International Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Prize twice, in 2001 for her novel Nadie me verá llorar (translated into English by Andrew Hurley as No One Will See Me Cry ) and again in 2009 for her novel La muerte me da. She has developed cross-genre collaborative projects with artists and composers, and has translated work into both Spanish and English.
Suzanne Jill Levine is a leading translator of Latin American literature and professor at the University of California Santa Barbara, where she directs a Translation Studies doctoral program.
Currently, we are welcoming proposals for any work that is invested in exploring the conceptual and creative boundaries of criticism today. Please check our Call for Proposals page for more information.
Please check back in February for a detailed schedule of presentations and events.
