This article explores reading mediators’ literary mediation in adverse contexts and unconventional spaces (such as camps, hospitals, community centres, and others) in Mexico and Chile. Through a deductive thematic analysis of 20 interviews, a relationship is established between literary mediation and Joan Tronto’s (1993) four categories of the ethics of care (caring about, caring for, caregiving, and care receiving). It is concluded that literary mediation in these contexts takes the form of an accompaniment that is organized through an emerging work methodology with communities. This methodology focuses on listening and is intuitively oriented and situated, which supports both recreational and diversion practices, as well as processes of self-knowledge and emotional containment. The discussion centres on how this mediation practice engages with both a humanitarian logic of care and with practices that decentralize the book’s authority and stature to pursue other relationalities.
