In this talk, Cabello-Hutt will answer the following questions: How is gender dissidence inscribed in Gabriela Mistral's body, performance, and discourse? How is this dissidence represented today, in the context of social outburst and sexual dissidence activisms? Where do we look for these dissidences and what do we expect from Mistral?

¿Cómo se inscribe la disidencia de género en el cuerpo, la performance y el discurso de Gabriela Mistral? ¿Cómo se representa esta disidencia hoy, en el contexto del estallido social y los activismos de disidencia sexual? ¿Dónde estamos buscando estas disidencias y qué esperamos de Mistral?
