FIFTH WORLD CONGRESS OF THE INTERNATIONAL AMERICAN

THEME: "AMERICAN CONFIGURATIONS"

Conference website

America with its multiple narratives, landscapes, languages, and experiences, projects itself in time like a mosaic in movement: a mosaic of cartographies imagined over time and projected in the descriptions of travelers and scientists, in fiction and poetry, in the discourses of politicians and activists, and in the images of photographers, artists, and filmmakers. The 5th IASA World Conference proposes to be a space for debating how different communities form senses of Americanness, originating from places of knowledge, politics, art, memory, and lived experience, where a possible "America" may be configured.
