Topographic turns investigates the symbolic productions of space in a series of narrative texts published since the turn of the millennium in Latin America. Drawing on theoretical approaches of the Spatial Turn and Geocriticism, the study critically examines literary topographies from four angles that exceed and transform territorial and national boundaries: dynamics of mediatic hyperconnectivity and accelerated mobility; affective genealogies; urban ecologies; and representations of otherness.  
Based on the analysis of works by Lina Meruane, Guillermo Fadanelli, Andrés Neuman, Andrea Jeftanovic, Sergio Chejfech and Bernardo Carvalho, among others, the book outlines the flows, ambiguities and tensions projected by the imagined communities of the 21st century. Overall the study seeks to offer a contribution to rethink the status of Latin American literature in the context of its advanced globalization and the consequent consolidation of translocalized spaces of enunciation.
