Circulations, Imaginations, Glances (and Fantasies) (Cergy)

What Latin America says to Europe: editions, imaginations, looks (and fantasies)

International Conference – December 8th and 9th, 2022 at the University CY Cergy Paris

Scientific director: David Copello (AGORA, University CY Cergy Paris), [email protected]

We often tend to see Latin America as a periphery of the global space. Globalization is therefore usually only understood as the circulation of ideas, models, knowledge, technologies or cultural assets from the north or west to the south. However, engagement with Latin America often leads to encountering its traces or identifying its influence in Europe. Politics, culture or knowledge: the aim of this symposium is to examine some of these different forms of Latin American presence in Europe and/or in the European perspective.
