This session welcomes paper proposals in English, Spanish, and Portuguese that consider any aspect of contemporary feminist activisms and cultural and artistic production in the Latin American context. Topics may include but are not limited to digital and hashtag feminist activisms, transnational feminist activisms, Black and Indigenous feminist activisms, Global South feminisms, street activisms, performance activisms, activisms and affect, and protest and artistic production within a broad conceptualization of “translation in action,” the theme of this year’s conference. What does it mean to “translate” digital and hashtag activisms into street activisms and vice versa? How are hashtag and street activisms “translated” into literature, music, performance art? In what ways are feminist activisms “translated” across space and time, across languages and cultures?
