The Center for Latinx Literature of the Americas Heading link

brings together writers, artists, activists, faculty members, students and the Chicago community to study, create, and celebrate new and innovative modes of literature, art and criticism. The Center is housed in the English and Latin American and Latino Studies Departments with the mission of positing a model for literary production that is interdisciplinary, border crossing, and which reflects the ways in which Chicago is a multilingual, diasporic city of the Americas. We focus on art and literature that is politically engaged and inseparable from larger questions of race, social justice, language equality and human rights. We are transhemispheric, and committed to artistic exchange between writers in the U.S. and Latin America. And we believe that translation and multilingual experimentation ought to be at the center of U.S. literary culture, and not the margins.
