About this Item

Title
Literatura de Cordel: Continuity and Change in Brazilian Popular Literature (Day 2, morning)
Summary
Literatura de cordel, literally "string literature," refers to small popular books or chapbooks, predominantly from northeastern Brazil. They were often suspended from cords or strings, hung across marketplace stalls belonging to local poets during the late 19th and 20th centuries. Today, cordel chapbooks are still sold and performed on street corners and in markets throughout Brazil, but are more readily circulated through the Internet. This two-day symposium focused on the medium's history, art, culture and traditions. Speakers for this session (2 of 3) included Maria Carmen Gambliel, Gayle Williams, Ieda Siqueira Wiarda, Marli Gomes Soares, Maggie Kruesi and Valda Morris-Slack.
