Bringing together writers, thinkers, communicators, and teachers of international level to promote the development of artistic talent and celebrate the Mesoamerican letters is the objective of the 7th Mesoamerican Writing-Culture Meeting, organized by the Faculty of Letters of the University of Costa Rica (UCR) and PROMESA Publishing House.
On August 30 and 31st, the Faculty of Letters and PROMESA, 44 national and 13 international lecturers will share their investigations with the audience during 20 hours at the Cultural Institute of Mexico on Barrio Los Yoses.
For Ospina, the Mesoamerican Writing-Culture Meeting is an annual gathering of writers, thinkers, communicators, and teachers, celebrating Central American literary works and its relationship to other countries. Writing is one of the most beautiful expressions of human dignity. It is one of the main pillars of Culture. Learning how to relate the past to the present and envision the future –by studying classics, contemporary, and unpublished works of literary art– helps us to better know and affirm the dignity of the human person: the true source of culture.
The main theme of the 7th Meeting –Pensamiento-Literatura-Independencia– is to Re-think and Re-write the processes of Independence occurred during the second decade of the XIX Century, when American Overseas Provinces of the Spanish Empire became independent. A political phraseology was then forged: from phrases to concepts and attitudes towards life. If Literature reflects society, it seems exciting to bring to life many dusted papers from that time and study them, in order to bring forth concepts and attitudes of
Independence, now that we have begun the second decade of the century.
