The School of Advanced Study of the University of London and the Sub-Faculty of Spanish of the University of Oxford, with the support of the Argentine Embassy London, present
Argentine Poetry Today: New Writing, New Readings
Senate House, London, Wed 5 June 2013. Room S261 (Second Floor)
This symposium brings together an international group of academics and poets to explore new tendencies and readings in Argentine poetry.
The last ten years have seen a surprising upsurge in poetic production and publishing in Argentina, in spite – or at times because – of the economic and political crisis of the early 2000s. Young writers, independent publishers, and new forms of diffusion have all emerged. Critics have developed innovative approaches, rethinking both the poetic tradition of the last 60 years and the very latest poetry there. This makes Argentine poetry today a fascinating subject for literary and cultural analysis.
