She examines the place of Latin American women writers in the literary canon and offers an overview of literary themes, searches, and aesthetics. Her talk highlights how such literature accounts for dissimilar and complex  spaces. It is, nonetheless, linked by common themes of violence, intimacy, inequality and  power. The emergence of new narratives and the circulation of Latin American literature translated worldwide will also be analyzed.
