The second Fenix-Congress (2016), Escritoras españolas en el exilio mexicano: una perspectiva transgeneracional adopts a transgenerational and gendered perspective on the Spanish exile in Mexico. The Fenix-members discuss and compare the strategies used by first and second generation exiles to construct their identity in between two home countries with the strategies used by the second generation of women exiles, the “daughters” of the exile, to define their transnational identities.
