Sharing work on exile cultures in order to understand how intellectuals come to grips with dislocation. Our initial focus is the German intellectual migration to the US during the 1930s and the shifting perception on modernism, democracy and culture. Our discussion is however open to other examples of culture and displacement.
About Cultural Synchronization and Disjuncture
A DLCL working group devoted to cultural theory and Latin Americanism, CultSync celebrates its third and final year of successful activities with this colloquium. A unique discursive space on campus for sustained intellectual exchange on central issues of contemporary criticism, the group fosters dialogue that is not produced exclusively by or for Latin Americanists, but one that, while emphasizing the specific contributions of a Latin American point of view, examines broader themes.
