Dr Eduardo Ramos-Izquierdo (Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires sur les Mondes Ibériques Contemporains (CRIMIC) Sorbonne, Paris), ‘De los clásicos a los actuales: intertextualidades en la literatura latinoamericana’.
Reading material will be provided a week in advance of the seminar.
Cultural Cartographies is the series of research seminars run by the Department of Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies (SPLAS) in 2012-13.
The research seminars aim to provide staff members and postgraduates, as well as visiting scholars (both established ones and early career researchers) with the opportunity to present their ideas in a friendly and less formal atmosphere. Formerly two separate departments, Spanish & Spanish American Studies merged with its Lusophone counterpart, Portuguese & Brazilian Studies in 2010. Cultural Cartographies therefore also refers to the dissolution of former departmental lines and the creation of new topographies within the College. The seminar series is another initiative to foster collaboration and new unexpected paths and connections within Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies, as well as a platform to prod and redraw the ideological maps of the Luso-Hispanic world.
