From Wall to Wall
From Wall to Wall is a yearly forum presented by Guadalajara’s International Book Fair as an avenue for debating the main questions arising from the global historic moment we live in from a vantage point that goes beyond scholarly disciplines.
The forum’s name alludes to the long-term vision from which its reflections arise: one that postulates the fall of the Berlin Wall and the –apparently superseded– notion of culminating the erection of a wall between the United States and Mexico as its chronological milestones.
Three urgent queries
In 2022, From Wall to Wall shall endeavour to tackle three urgent questions for our times, arising from debates on gender, violence and the cybersphere that are currently shaping culture all over the world.
In the course of three sessions, we shall explore Three lines of thought:
1) cultural patterns. policies, and legislation for addressing digital violence, not only in the context of gender but beyond it, in the fields of politics, culture and society at large;
2) the debate on so-called cancel culture and its potential to do good or harm in a democratic society and in the context of rule of law;
3) the future of the #MeToo movement in view of its development through the years and the crisis that the Heard- Depp trial entailed for it.
All sessions shall be available to view on this website, as on all websites and social media outlets for bothh FIL Guadalajara and El Heraldo de México, the media partner with which it is our privilege to collaborate this year.
