About this book


This book explores contemporary cultural, historical and geopolitical connections between Latin America and Australia from an interdisciplinary perspective. It seeks to capitalise on scholarly developments and further unsettle the multiple divides created by the North-South axis by focusing on processes of translocal connectivities that link Australia with Latin America. The authors conceptualise the South-South not as a defined geographic space with clear boundaries, but rather as a mobile terrain with multiple, evolving and overlapping translocal processes. 

Fernanda Peñaloza is Senior Lecturer in Latin American Studies and Chair of the Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies at the University of Sydney. 

Sarah Walsh is Teaching Fellow in the Department of History at Washington State University, USA.
