Transconceptualisms: Emergent Poetics in Spanish 
Transconceptualismos: poéticas emergentes en español 

Reading / Round table 

At the turn of the 21st Century forces in literature engaged in a worldwide conversation upon aesthetic values, particularly un/originality within the craft of writing. In 2012, Vanessa Place referred to conceptualisms as “the first international literary movement.”  Mexican author and artist Ulises Carrion (1941-1989) wrote that “plagiarism is the starting point of creativity in the new art.” These moments in writing point out to the dawning of a conversation in which Spanish speaking writers have a clear voice and strong presence. We will read the works of experimental Spanish speaking writers shedding light upon the context of global conceptualisms.
