Ercilla’s "La Araucana" at 450 (1569-2019)

Posted By Miguel Martínez, Monday, July 2, 2018
Updated: Monday, July 2, 2018
2019 marks the 450th anniversary of the publication of the first installment of Alonso de Ercilla’s "La Araucana" in 1569, a watershed moment in the history of Spanish and Latin American poetry. Throughout the years, the poem has always been the subject of intense scholarly dispute over its aesthetic and ideological stakes, and it has never ceased to grasp the imagination of readers and poets alike. This panel aims at foregrounding new scholarship on La Araucana. Proposals on all topics and from all approaches are welcome, whether engaging with the text in its immediate historical context or with the epic’s enduring post-Renaissance afterlives.
Please send a title (15-word maximum), an abstract (150-word maximum), and a short CV to Miguel Martínez ( by August 1st, 2018.
