1st International Hispanic Conference of the Day of the Dead: "Monsters, Ghosts & Devils in Latin American & Peninsular Literature, Film, and Music”

October 31 - November 1, 2011

Miami, Florida

Description:

Conference Theme: Magical Realism and the Fantastic have been associated with Latin American texts because of the recurrent presence of ghosts, monsters, orishas and spirits originating from pre-colonial civilizations. However, Peninsular culture has also produced esperpentos that signaled the presence of evil both within our own humanity and the Christian and Romantic western ideologies to which we bore allegiance. This conference aims to create a semiotic study of these representations in the Hispanic culture. Could these symbolic narratives form part of an underside to our history?
