Other Latitudes: Argentinian Voices Around the 49th Parallel is the exponent of the creative resonance of writers who moved from Argentina to other latitudes of Americas impelled by historical and personal circumstances. In all of their works, novels, short stories as well as their in poetry, these writers show that despite having lived outside the country for decades -in most cases- they still maintain a typically Argentinian worldview. Nevertheless, some cultural and linguistic elements are noticed in their writings, associated them with the territorial area defined by the 49th parallel north: the imaginary line that serves as a border between the U.S. and Canada.
