Panel discussion: Why Study the Cultural Production of Conservatism?


Open to students and the public.
The panel will end a 4-day workshop (open only to active participants) titled Conservative Sensibilities, which will gather 12 experts on 19th century literature and culture in Latin America and Spain for discussions on how the overlooked conservative vein in the cultural production can be studied.

Researchers participating in the panel discussion:

Ronald Briggs (Associate Professor, Columbia University/Barnard College, USA)
Andrea Castro (Associate Professor, Göteborgs universitet, Sweden)
Dorde Cuvardic (Associate Professor, Universidad de Costa Rica, Costa Rica)
Juan Pablo Dabove (Full Professor, University of Colorado Boulder, USA)
Sandra Gasparini (Assistant Professor, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina)
Felipe Martínez Pinzón (Assistant Professor, Brown University, USA)
Adriana Pacheco (International Board of Advisors, University of Texas at Austin - Sistema Nacional de Investigadores, México)
Ana Peñas (Assistant Professor, Universidad a Distancia de Madrid, Spain)
Ignacio Sánchez Prado (Full Professor, Washington University in St. Louis, USA)
Kari Soriano Salkjelsvik (Associate Professor, Universitetet i Bergen, Norway)
Wadda Ríos Font (Full Professor, Columbia University/Barnard College, USA)
Javier Uriarte (Assistant Professor, Stony Brook University, USA)

The purpose of the workshop Conservative Sensibilities is to gather eminent international researchers specialising in Literary and Cultural Studies to discuss how the ideologies of Conservatism became embedded in the cultural production of the 19th century in the Iberian and Latin American countries, for example in their literature, periodicals, photographs and museums. The goal is to engage in an archaeology of Conservatism in order to unfold its complex and multifaceted ideology from the standpoint of the humanities, to look closer at its philosophical origin as a reaction to the French Revolution, and to inform its relation to liberal thought in the Hispanic and Luzo-Brazilian world through history, focusing mainly on the period of nation formation, i.e. the 19th century, but not forgetting the impact of the conservative vein in the 20th and 21st centuries.

In contrast to the panel discussion on 13 October, the workshop will only be open to the participants. The event is funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.
