Developed by the project’s Editorial Board, each of the teams analyzed this framework and adapted it to their local contexts in developing their research objectives and work plans during the Recovery Phase.

This essay discusses LEAR’s decision to establish a “Bureau Editor for Mexico” to publish the continent-oriented magazine, Sin Fronteras / All America—the roots of the future “Congreso Continental de Escritores y Artistas de Toda América [Continental Congress of Writers and Artists from All America]. As proposed by Ángel Flores, the American Writers’ Congress in New York agreed to create the magazine Sin Fronteras / All America.
Sin Fronteras / All America was to consist of a number of Latin American editorial committees linked to the one in New York, in an attempt to organize a single cultural front that would be spread across the entire face of the American continent. Ángel Flores was an active member of the League of American Writers of New York.
