About the Authors
  • This book covers the full range and diversity of Chilean literature from the times of the Spanish conquest to the present. By emphasizing transnational, hemispheric, and global approaches to Chilean literature, it reflects the relevance of themes such as neoliberalism, migration and exile, as well as subfields like ethnic studies, and gender and sexuality studies. It showcases the diversity of Chilean literature throughout all periods, regions, ethnocultural groups and social classes, all the while foregrounding its regional variations. Unlike previous literary histories, it maps a rich heterogeneity by including works by Chileans of indigenous, African, Jewish, Arab, Asian, and Croatian ancestries, as well as studies of literature by LGTBQ authors and Chilean Americans. Ambitious and authoritative, this book is essential reading for scholars of Chilean Literature, Latin American Literature, the Global South, and World Literature.

    • Showcases the diversity and heterogeneity of Chilean literature throughout all periods, regions, ethnocultural groups, and social classes
    • Shifts critical focus from national identity and issues to a more multifaceted transnational, hemispheric, and global approach
    • Shifts focus from Transatlantic to Transpacific Studies, emphasizing East-West cross-cultural relations that go back to the times of the Manila Galleon
