Abstract

This essay explores the intersection between global neoliberalism and the production of literary texts in Spanish from the United States. The essay suggests the notion of “new Latino Americanism” as a synthetic methodological tool that both problematizes and maps the US relocation of neoliberal Latin American literary byproducts. The essay concludes by suggesting that both deterritorialization and postnational imagination are literary tropes of the new Latino American literatures written in Spanish from the United States.
