When:
Saturday Aug 18   03:00 PM to 04:00 PM (1 hour)
Even though there is apparently neither a market or visible outlet for Mexican female horror writers, there is a hidden tradition of writers who have used the devices of the horror genre to explore issues of sexuality and the human and social condition. We see these women writers mining both the supernatural and technological forces that shape life in Mexico. This panel is an attempt to start mapping out this tradition from its early roots through the present.
