Poets of the New World: Literary and Cultural Transmission in Early Modern Spanish America
This symposium brings together scholars from across Europe and the Americas to address a phenomenon which opens new and varied vistas on Hispanic colonial culture. Early modern Spanish American poetry (c. 1500-1700) opens new and varied vistas on Hispanic colonial culture. Whether as material object or performance, a product of the urban space or the peripheries, prayer or protest, the creation of art forms in verse was intimately connected with the emergence of American identities. While manifold networks of interchange connected the European metropolis to the burgeoning colonies, cross-regional exchanges were also fruitful.
