The International Conference on Latin American Cybercultural Studies: Exploring New Paradigms and Analytical Approaches took place at the Foresight Centre at the University of Liverpool on 19-20 May 2011.

This conference, the first of its kind in the UK, focused on the growing field of Latin American cyberculture, including literary blogs, digital storytelling, digital poetry, hypertext novels, hypermedia fiction, net.art, and online performance art, amongst others, and aimed to explore analytical and theoretical approaches to these new media works. Combining presentations by practitioners and scholars alike, the conference aimed to provide an important counterpart to the Anglophone-dominated arena of cybercultural studies, and included workshops on hypermedia narrative and digital poetry, as well as the opportunity to reflect on research-led teaching in digital media.

The conference was organized by Dr Claire Taylor at the School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies (SOCLAS) at the University of Liverpool, with IT support from Tori Holmes (SOCLAS). The organizers would like to thank the Modern Humanities Research Association, the Instituto Cervantes, Manchester, the Mexican Embassy, London, the University of Liverpool International Collaboration Fund, the University of Liverpool SOCLAS Research Subcommittee, and the University of Liverpool Research Institute of Latin American Studies for their contributions to the conference.
