¡A Todo Vapor! – Steampunk in Latin America
Presented by Captain Quaestor
A fascinating dialogue regarding Steampunk in Latin American countries. Latin American steampunks have a unique take on 19th century aesthetics and vision that’s rooted in Hispanic culture, and a time in which many of the Spanish colonies were rebelling against the Spanish Empire and seeking their independence. We’ll talk about the history of Latin America in the 19th century, how it differs from the Victorian Empire and the North American Wild West. We’ll also present several 19th century Latin American heroes – historical and fictional. Lastly, we’ll show the 1st and 2nd episodes of the Argentinian steampunk webseries Distopia Argentia.
